Qcad under linux appears to be suffering a slow memory leak to the point it chomps 1.8GB on my machine and the swap grinds to a halt.

Can you advise what system info you need and I will get.

Stop QCAD, give it 20-30sec to clean up and its back to normal.

Looking over the past 30 min in System Monitor, Startup 0.1GB, 30 mins in, 1.2GB, close all tabs open (3 off) and back to 1.1GB.

This task depends upon

I think it is possibly that I am renumbering, ie continually editing text via the dialogue. Suspect the dialogue is not been cleaned up.
