I think it might be a bit of both
I am seeing one possible leak generating preview images. Another which
someone suggested could be the OSD cache "leaking".
However, having switched off the EIT code makes a huge difference to
memory requirements. Backend is down to around 21M, but frontend is
still 160M basic or so (rising rapidly to several hundred)
Also, the EIT scanner on recordings uses around 40% CPU on a P2.8Ghz,
but I have seen some comments recently that this may be possible to
optimise a little?
Just a "me too" anyway.
