Wow. The tiger is really eating up the RAM ....
How is the memory usage in a regular Linux box?
1. I'm mostly a windows guy, I don't have a Linux box at the moment, except my 2 Zaurii.
2. inkscape or pdaxii13 doesn't always "release" all the space used on the swap after closing a program. I mentioned this in the inkscape thread, that restarting 'X' "clears" out the swap, and this is what I usually do after using inkscape for awhile.
3. Sometimes, if you are not careful, you can have 2 copies of inkscape running, and that's what I think happened just before I loaded the "Tiger" drawing.
Opening a new drawing, doesn't close the previous drawing. Also using the "close" icon or command results in the same thing as the "quit" icon or command, and closes inkscape. I don't always close a drawing before opening another one.
