I have setup an HTPC based on oxine + vdr
It has 2gigs of RAM and another 2gigs of Swap space
Upon booting it uses about 300megs of RAM.

5 hours later (running vdr all this time)
I notice most of the ram is in use.

Is this a known memory leak or a design feature?

If a known memory leak is there a patch for it or we need to wait for 1.7.5?
