#95 Memory Leaks on Win32?

No resource leaks of any significance to report here. My setup is a Compaq Presario 1690 notebook: K6-II/400MHz w/64MB RAM and Win98 (pity me). The only leaks I can detect are the ones reported by the Mozilla console window, and that reports two or three webshells leaked on occasion. As for bringing the system to its knees, my performance is staying steady even after heavy surfing with Mozilla. (Of course, since I'm using Win98, that's almost on par with my C64.)
I don't know if it's Win95, something only you have running, or something everyone but me has. I have a Win95 system, but it's only a 486/33 with 12MB RAM, so I can't try Mozilla on it. I can tell you, though, that it sometimes leaks resources even when the only thing running is Windows (not Internet) Explorer, and with my integrated Win98 Explorer leaks are even worse with or without Mozilla.
If anyone out there finds out I'm wrong, please correct me. I can't think of it being anything else but one of Win95's 3000 known bugs interacting with an integrated Internet Explorer's many known bugs.
Hope this helps a little bit.
