I guess this is just the Privacy app being insane and retrieving/deleting all IDs at once.

Myz 12.04 amd64 Zeitgeist keeps filling up my main memory except300mb & over half the swap mem til effectively slowing down the system I kill it in system monitor.
It sometimes returns & behaves, but mostly does it again during a session more than once. When I shut down it says 'you are trying to run something w/ Kxx & passes the job to upstart. There is a mention of using services commands + mentions of ictl & init.d & apport in the output!
