Ok !! it is leak,

In my house the station not crashes, but the increase of memory usage is 
visible for me, because
my Station is a very old system (k6-2 500 with 192MB) i not update the 
I use this machine for severals year, actually   after the 4.5,5x.,6.x  
and now 7- CURRENT really consume more memory.

For Firefox is more clear,  before a update in last two week i use +/- 
12 [tabs] now it is impossible.
