    Silk 5.0/Netscape 4 memory leak

    If you are encountering intermittent/strange failures during
    long (3+ hours) test runs using Silk 5.0 and one of the Netscape 4
    browsers (4.08 or 4.51) you are likely running out of
    memory. I have finally tracked this problem down, under NT 4.0. This
    problem does not appear to occur using Navigator 3.04 gold.

    The problem is obvious once ALL of physical memory is consumed,
    as you get virtual memory error dialog. But it is not at all apparent
    as you get close to exhausting memory (ah, those boundry conditions, eh?).

    The cause of the virtual memory error is Navigator -- it slowly
    consumes all of available memory, which appears to be a memory leak
    problem. But its not clear to me if Navigator is the real culprit or
    the Silk Agent's integration with Navigator. I have logged a problem
    with Segue support.

    Re: Silk 5.0/Netscape 4 memory leak

    Terry,

    Netscape's 4.x browsers are prone to memory leaks standing by themselves. On more than one occasion, I've left a Netscape browser open overnight or over the weekend, doing absolutely nothing but sitting on a home page and it's eaten up all available memory. It is possible that working these browsers in conjunction with Silk accelerates this process.
