Re: [Evolution] Possible memory leak somewhere in evolution-mail

message among my myriad of e-mail accounts. It was certainly the case
these last few weeks when I started noticing some kind of memory leak.

I've just deleted the vFolder and it seems to not leak anymore but only
time will tell.

Somebody else reported this to me a while ago on IRC and I asked him to
run memprof but memprof just got all confused and reported nothing.

Although, this seems to be related to IMAP filtering.  (I.e. if I
remember correctly, he didn't seem to have any memory leaks if he turned
off all the indexes.)
