I am processing some large ooffice data files (circa 15 Mb). After boot, Ooffice and file load process manager reports 37% of my 2 Gb ram is in use. After 3 or 4 data manipulation operations, copying ooffice sheets of circa 13,000 x 9 data with some math operations, proc manager reports 80% of ram in use and the systems slows considerably.
There seems to be a memory leak, has anyone else seen this? is there an easy way to flush the memory?
Closing and reopening Ooffice does restore the situation but given the file size that's a lengthy operation.
