  • But that doesn't excuse 600K of calendars taking up 40% of my RAM on a 512MB machine (according to Process Viewer) in iCal.

    Are you sure that you are reading the Process Viewer output right?

    `ps` on Mac OS X is reporting memory usage differently than other BSD's and Linux ...

    (I botched my OS X installation with the latest upgrade, so I can't check what iCal uses on my box right now).

      When it says "% Memory" and below that reads "40", yeah, I think so. :-)

      Note that I have *only* seen this with a large-ish calendar. No one else I've talked to who reports significantly lower memory use has had a calendar .ics file larger than 300K, let alone 500K or more.
