Bug Description

Binary package hint: gwibber

On my system, I find that if I leave gwibber running (Facebook, twitter, and that it will eventually cause my system to grind to a halt by eating up all the memory on my machine. This has been the case for all versions of gwibber that I've tried, including the current.

This feels to me like it's some sort of memory leak.

Hi Martin, can you reproduce this in gwibber trunk? Ken has some incoming fixes into karmic at some point so if you could confirm that it's in trunk that would help out, thanks.
