I included Shutter on my Startup Applications list upon installing the app. For the second time in two days, my laptop would suddenly freeze heavily for a few seconds that I can't even move the mouse pointer immediately. I had checked my system monitory --> processes, and to my surprise Shutter was using a big chunk of my memory 2.1GB out of my 3.8GB total memory so I had to end the app. Kindly note I was not using Shutter at the time of the freeze.
It seems like including it on my startup applications list is a factor in this problem. Is there a way to solve this without having to give it up on startup apps list?
I'm using 12.04 64-bit on my ThinkPad R61i. (if this would help)
