OK, I just noticed that Moz is taking up 44-some MB for this window alone, according to the W2K task manager.

Minimize it and it drops to 534K and then starts slowly creaking up to about 1.8MB. Restore and it\'s back up to 15MB or so. Strange. I have 512MB so no swapping while this is going on.

What\'s going on here - is taskman lying, or does Mozilla really shed 40MB of RAM by taking it off the screen? Is most of the 15MB used just to keep the page image on the screen?
