Question: Memory leaks in Lion?
I have a lot of problems after upgrade to Lion, some indicate suspected memory leaks. I've had problems with several applications like iMovie, Safari, Firefox etc. The computer gets slower and slower. Stopping all applications doesn't help, reboot is required.
I've recently registered as an (paying) iOS developer but I have major problems with Xcode as well. Xcode 4 is extremely slow, especially if I haven't rebooted for a while. I even get build problems and other strange problems that has no connection whatsoever to the code I've written. I get build problems that I can't understand the cause of, I reboot and the build in Xcode is successful without any modifications.
I only have 2GB memory so that can explain some of the problems but I haven't ran out of virtual memory as far as I know. I'll try an upgrade to 4GB on my late 2008 MacBook. Anyway, I suspect bugs in Lion.
