Bug Description

Using the "top" command, and sorting by memory usage, Panflute is the 3rd-highest process; only Firefox and Thunderbird use more RAM. I use Panflute with Banshee, but even after Banshee and all other players are closed, Panflute still uses a lot of RAM. I'm using Panflute version 0.7.0. Here are the first few lines of output from the "top" command:

I agree...the large amount of RAM that panflute uses is the only reason that keep me away from this very good project right now :(
