Summary: Polkitd memory leak after norma usage
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: windows2linux@xxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.3
(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/6.0.472.55 Safari/534.3

The polkitd process, which runs as root, starts at 4 MB of reserved memory, but
will gradually balloon to giant levels, such as 250 MB and beyond. If I kill
the process (kill -9) in runlevel 3, then return to runlevel 5, it once again
starts at 4 MB, but it will grow to the same levels if left unchecked.

I have deleted my ~/.pulse and ~/.dbus directories, but it made no difference.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the system normally.
Actual Results:
The polkitd process will consume more memory than it should. Eventually, if
left alone long enough, the system will be forced to use swap, and if still
left alone, the system will begin to crawl.

Expected Results:
The polkitd process should not consume enourmous amounts of RAM.
