gnome-software using hundreds of MB of memory when not in use
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
It seems gnome-software is running in the background all the time. Not
a big deal if it was lightweight, but it seems to use hundreds of MB
(from smem output):
PID User Command Swap USS PSS
2291 jan /usr/bin/gnome-software --g 285436 112576 117982
A total of over 400MB in RAM and swap combined.
After killing and restarting, it takes "only" a bit over 100MB.
