I tried your patch today and watched the available memory (using top)
when replaying. The number stayed the same. Excellent!

However, when I did FF or FR, the number decreased.
Ralf, can you reproduce the problem?
I am using plain vanilla VDR 1.3.30 with a few small patches
(SourceCaps, DeleteResume, burn) and of course your patch.
