Subject Memory allocation in Super Server
Author Dan Palley
I found this item in the Interbase knowledgebase and I'm somewhat concerened
about it's implications:


"When InterBase allocates memory to perform operations, it does not ever
return this memory to the operating system. This memory is returned to
InterBase's internal memory free list, but it is never returned to the
operating system for other processes to use. Thus the memory is
not freed until the InterBase service is stopped or the machine is

What type of operations in Interbase would cause this to happen? Was this
addressed at all in Interbase 6?
