The update to 295.49 seems to have fixed the problem for me! Thanks!

comment Ubuntu 12.04 x64 - Very slow response and sluggishness
Just another +1. Especially evident in nautilus where it can take several seconds to show contents of a folder, even if it just contains a few files... Moving the cursor between items in nautilus using arrow keys is also extremely laggy -- when tapping the arrow keys quickly I can follow the cursor moving in slow motion between items... In addition, doing basically anything in nautilus makes it consume more than 100% cpu (on a mutli-core system).

comment Why do Back In Time snapshots appear to be so large?
The df command seems to regards hard links as if they were normal files; i.e the space consumed by a file is counted as many times as there are hard links to it. I see the same think on my external backup-disk (using BiT as well). But the available free space appears correct, though...

comment Ubuntu slows down over time?
Coincidence, I don't know: any rudimentary troubleshooting of system lags would include monitoring cpu load, disk load and check for any suspicious log messages... I think htop is more handy than top (mouse support, scrollable process list, less cluttered output etc) -- and we're probably not the only ones. 'tail -f' is the standard command to "follow" a file; i.e print new lines as they are written to it... dmesg just dumps the content of /var/log/dmesg once and then quits -- no continuous output of new lines. So, concidental? Perhaps, but enough to presume "plagiarism"? I don't think so...

What? I certainly did not! And what do you mean by "word-by-word", there are hardly any similar sentences (except of course for the commands which are common knowledge). Besides, @Scaine, the above post addresses the specific issue of a suspected memory leak which I don't think yours does. I would not mind at all linking to your post now that I know it exists, but accusing me of plagiarism I certainly do mind -- there are polite ways of pointing out similarities in topic without insinuating deliberate theft!

Regardless of how many programs you run, there may be a buggy process consuming memory.

comment What is the 'canonical-census' package?
If you for instance buy a laptop with a pre-installed operating system, that's an OEM install of that operating system.
