Bug Description

OnBoard has a pretty serious memory leak, at startup it uses 9mb of ram but after approximately a hour it reaches 200mb and it gets higher and higher until the system freezes out of the lack of memory.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your
description didn't include enough information.

At a minimum, we need:
 1. The release of Ubuntu you are using, via 'lsb_release -rd'.
 2. The version of the package you are using, via 'apt-cache policy package_name' or by checking in Synaptic.

Also, are you frequently switching between keyboard layouts, i.e. different languages?

Well, yes.

Thanks, I've seen it too now. No need to switch layout groups, just typing is enough. I'll have a look.

I've pushed a workaround. Typing shouldn't increase memory consumption anymore.
