Public bug reported:

After I log in (ubuntu session) the systen(?), shell(?) uses a lot of memory. 
When the computer has 2GB RAM, 1.2GB is used. When the computer has 4GB RAM, 
1.7GB is used. When the computer has 8GB RAM, 2.2GB is used. I tried it out in 
virtualbox with a newly installed system. I changed the memory size and started 
ubuntu. I think a new, clean system should use the same amount of memory 
independently of the RAM size. 
Not to mention that the system is unusable, because RAM quickly fills up 
(memory leak?) and become laggy. Unity in 16.04 uses approx. 800kB memory. Why 
does gnome-shell need so much memory? I think it should be fixed, because 18.04 
is an LTS release! I would like to work with it.Description:    Ubuntu
