notify-osd memory leak

Asked by kubro on 2015-05-19

over an 8 hour day notify-osd will build up to over 9GB of memory usage bogging down my system.

Is this a known issue? and if so is there a fix. If not how may I help to document the issue for resolution?

Thank you,
Kubro

Seems to be the same here. Also, the grey pop-up windows to the top right of the screen never disappear.

Same here. 5.9GB after just a few hours of running for me.
I had disabled KDE Notifications in the System tray because plasmashell had been memory-leaking and now it seems better. I wonder if the two are related.
I also wonder if this is tied to this
