I'm on a fairly regular basis getting mintupdate falling into a VERY high mem usage pattern. It really kills the machine, I have to switch to a text terminal and killall MintUpdate - the swapping just makes the machine unusable. I have a gut instinct that it's some kind of error that it's not expecting because mintUpdate gets launched whilst the wireless is still getting a connection.
If it doesn't happen on login, it doesn't happen at all, but it is a problem to debug, as I can't even use the machine to right-click mintUpdate and exit, let alone try and determine the cause.
