Memory usage is deceptive sometimes. Programs like X are shown as using lots
of memory, when actually they're just using shared libraries that other apps
are using equally. I agree that it would be pretty bad for a terminal
emulator to use 38 megs, but I doubt that's actually the case. Heh.. I could
be wrong, though ;)
