You should report this terrible flash player memory usage to Adobe. It
is a closed source application, over which OLPC has no control or
ability to fix.
Mike Melanson is the lead Linux developer, and is working toward a
release of Flash 9 in early 2007. I'm sure he'd love to have a file
that causes such a memory leak in flash to work with.
