Ticket #11708 (new defect)
sugar shell memory leak

richard and i have both observed machines which, when allowed to sit for long periods, have huge python sugar processes.
the attached logs are from a machine where the sugar shell was taking 41% of memory (385M virtual, 347M resident). it was not suspending/resuming. it was associated to the "olpc" network at twine, and so there were both a lot of laptops in view, and a lot of networks in view.
build is os30.
when i picked up the machine (i hadn't touched it in at least several days), the touchpad was responsive, but the system would not respond to keystrokes or mouse clicks. after a long time (30 seconds or a minute -- long enough to have a conversation about the symptoms, the machine started responding, and is now behaving "normally".
