Hi Everyone,

I just thought that I would warn you about the To Do Tracker Widget from Monkey Business Labs.

Tiger was running very slow and I opened up the Activity Monitor to find that the To Do Tracker Widget was eating nearly 1 GB of memory! (And I had only 2 short items on my little list!)

I closed the Widget and now everything is running fine.

Is this a common problem with Widgets? I just upgraded to Tiger and would like to know if anyone else has experienced that some of them somehow can eat that much memory.

I was looking at Activity Monitor the other day (before 10.4.2 update) and noticed that I only had about 70 meg of RAM available on a machine with 3 gig.

I listed all processes and noticed that the To Do Tracker Widget was consuming 1.6 gig of RAM by itself. :(

Memory leaks from people just jumping on the widget bandwagon... :(

Hopefully they will listed to the people downloading them and correct the issues quick.
