The following is a message I sent to the Xerox-based moo-cows on 28/3/97,
but never got through -

So I finally got around to upgrade BioMOO to 1.8.0p6, still with FUP 1.8,
minus another extension that we don't need anymore - and the main
difference I see is that -running the same database- 1.8.0p6 takes
significantly more memory than 1.8.0p5.
Startup memory under 1.8.0p5+FUP1.8+otherstuff: 28808 K
Startup memory under 1.8.0p6+FUP1.8:            30760 K
Increase: 1952 K, or about 6.8%

Restarting again with 1.8.0p5, it returns to the 28.8 meg size. Back to
1.8.0p6 it raises again to 30.7 meg.

I still have to let it run for a while to see if it still leaks memory as
it used to...

Sadly, the answer to the latter question is - yes.
