Package: unknown-horizons Version: 2017.1+ds-2 Hi. When I played though the tutorial today, for the first time in a long time, the experience at the start was quite nice, but after a while the game became slower and slower. A look at 'top' showed that the program was using a lot of memory (31% of my total), and all swap was spent. At the end it was running so slow it was hard to use the game. After I ended the game I did a test run in valgrind just starting and stopping the game (ie just visiting the main meny), and according to valgrind 200 MiB was lost and 400 MiB was indirectly lost. In addition there were heaps of problems reported by valgrind about use after free. I asked about excessive memory usage on #unknown-horizons (irc.freenode.net), and was told by user LinuxDonald that several fixes regarding memory usage should be fixed in version 2017.2. Perhaps some of these fixes should be backported to Stretch?
The problem is what shall be backported? Are those bug fixes documented somewhere? Can you confirm that 2017.2 resolves all memory issues and the "sluggishness"?
