Angry memory leak returns with 180.16

Hi,

The problem of memory leak was gone with 180.11 (at least what I sought), however with the new 180.16 it is back, X11 sucks every bit of RAM till no avail. card Fan is at max even though performance level is at 0 (170Mhz).

GeForce 8400 G, 128 M (driver says I have 512-go figure), Core2 DUO 2Ghz and 2G of RAM.

I m reverting back to the 180.11 driver.

Anyone confirm the problem?

Regards,

I have the same specs. what about memory? it seems the worse case is when playing videos, the memory is completly eaten and the gtkperf is 4x slower.
