Jani, do you how much memory consumes file-roller for example with a
LARGE archive? For large I mean a with 400000 files inside it.
Try (pmap -d file_roller_pid | head and look at the third line) and

I DONT have nothing against GNOME, neither GNOME developers who i
don't even know, My opposition is purely technical, GNOME apps are
heavy and memory consuming but you don't WANT to understand this.
