| Just to add my experience with xv and Netbsd-current... It has *always*
| seemed that xv never releases memory once it has grabbed some.  This
| effect is the reason I'd asked a week or so ago if you'd ported xv to
| current.  8MB ram and 16MB swap.  fvwm and rxvt definitely give more room
| but eventually (quickly) all locks up and its reboot time...

	xv has some horrible memory leaks in it, which makes it a very
	good test for using virutal memory up.  i don't even get it much
	past 14m though, before my machine goes byebye, and i've got
	70mb of swap space. [16mb ram].
