Well, this seems to be quite much. If it's a regular usage, you can stop
reading now, if it actually is too much, read on.
So, I like to "investigate" that problem a little further using
valgrind. Now I do have several questions regarding that:
- Do I need the evolution-debuginfo package?
- How do I see, if evolution is using much memory when starting it from
valgrind: Is the memory usage of "memcheck" a good indicator?
- Which options should I pass on to valgrind on the command line? On
their website, only --leak-check=yes is mentioned

As using valgrind with a program does not really result in a nicely
responding GUI, I like to limit the profiler usage to as few times as

Thanks for any help and thanks for the great product!
