Let's try longer than 30 secs, eh?
% ps ax -o cmd:50,vsz,rss,stime | egrep '[p]ython'
/usr/bin/python -E /usr/sbin/setroubleshootd 808024 12104 Jul06
python /usr/share/system-config-printer/applet.py 232764 6436 Jul06
/usr/bin/python -E /usr/bin/sealert -s 411728 18524 Jul06
python /usr/libexec/revelation-applet --oaf-activa 458328 55056 Jul06
python /usr/lib64/gdesklets/gdesklets-daemon 453980 65768 Jul23
python ./hpssd.py 171220 1176 Jul11
...that's 2_536_044 KB VSZ and 159_064 KB RSS, and as you can see I've rebooted gdesklets recently (it was roughly double that, I think).
Plus I'm not running pupplet/yum-updatesd atm. And for instance "revelation-applet" is just a text entry box 95% of the time.
I appreciate that the huge VSZ numbers are (hopefully) mostly unused shared libs. etc. but half a GB is still a lot for the OS to manage for a text box, and 40+MB of RSS for a simple GUI is far from "so much crap".
For comparison my webserver uses two processes with a VSZ of about 12MB each and RSS of about 1MB each, and I'd prefer that to be smaller.
