I'm also finding that the hud-service process has started leaking memory
+ CPU recently. It was never a problem for me before.

As I speak it's using 100% of one CPU core and 5.5gig of RAM! I'm
finding it like that each morning and having to reboot before I start
work for the day.

- Ubuntu 15.04
- Linux stoa 3.19.0-30-generic #34-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 2 22:08:41 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
- Thinkpad T450 i7 with 16gigs of ram

I don't really use Firefox, although I occasionally start it to test
things. I have few/no bookmarks in Firefox.

If someone can explain how I can obtain the debug symbols for hud-
service I'll have a go at running it under Valgrind.
