Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

After upgrading to Jaunty from Intrepid, the general memory usage of KDE became very high and the memory usage keeps on growing with the the continuous run. I don't know why all the base applications occupy so high memory. 

Opening kmail, konsole, firefox and eclipse alone causes memory swapping and the system becomes very slow.
It never happened in Intrepid with KDE 4.2.

$ lsb_release -rd
Description:    Ubuntu jaunty (development branch)
Release:        9.04

$ uname -a
Linux <hostname> #31-Ubuntu SMP Wed Mar 11 15:43:58 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

The attachment shows the memory usage just after a few minutes of login.

Thanks a lot...
