    Almost all the time, I end up with no memory available and the system halted. At the beginning, memory is not a problem. As time goes on, allocated memory increases even if I do not generate new variables. For example, I keep using 'print' or 'help'. Finally no free memory is available. When I run a huge program unknowingly, the system halts. Also windows multi-tasking becomes impossible. Why does this happen? I am using IDL 5.4 on Pentium III 700 MHz, 392 M RAM, 6Gb HDD.

    I had a similar problem when working with idl 5.3 running on windows 98. The problem seemed to be solved when turning off the variable watch window. An RSI person (forgot the name) suggested this. The variable watch window is turned off from: File/ Preferences/ layout.
