I noticed that drivemount_appl is memory hungry, I list my evidence (108m in top list). My Ubuntu runs for several days now and I connected several USB drives to it and changed several CDROM disks in my drive. As my swap is full I was looking for my memory and noticed that drivemount_appl allocated too much memory for itself. There is no filesystem mounted now (applet shows only unmounted floopy icon). Is there memory leak in the applet?

Note: the original reporter indicated the bug was in package 'gnome-applets2'; however, that package was not published in Ubuntu.
