As now the software packages on devprev and main are the same, why is the memory usage in devprev almost the double of what I see in main. (I was running standard in devprev, but now I a putting all my clients in main). Could this difference have something to do with the frequent crashing I experienced in devprev?

Changed to bug. It looks like there is a serious memory leak in devprev.

Thanks for letting us know. Is there something we should delete from our folders after switching to main? Any excess files?

I don't see any significant difference between devprev and main, they both use a lot of memory. 250-300K of real, and usually over 500MB of virtual.

On my machine there was a significant difference. About 1.2 Gb on devprev and about 0.5-0.8 on main. This was on 888 but also on other puzzles. Now not using devprev anymore.

On 897 and 895, some of my clients made it up to 1,777mb

Please see NickyCGS's post in this feedback:

Hopefully this is the cause of this crazy memory usage!
