Pattern fills cause memory leak
there are other related bugs, but I decided to open a new one with a specific use case.
Short form : when using a complex spiraling pattern, hundreds of MegaBytes or ram are used by Inkscape after zooming in and out a couple of times. After working on the document for several minutes, Inkscape completely fills my 4 GB of ram and causes the system to crash (or is killed by the kernel).
I isolated the object which triggers the issue. It's a simple polygon to which is applied a complex pattern.
(please also note that PDF export fails : evince doesn't manage to render it and gets extremely slow before crashing)
(Using : Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64, no PPA, Inkscape 0.48)
