Bug report for NewsLeecher (9j2oih2(2), 1008)

[... if you have the time, please write how the bug occurred ...]%0D%0A%0D%0A%0D%0A%0D%0A%0D%0A%0D%0A%0D%0A%0D%0APLEASE DONT CHANGE DATA BELOW%0D%0A-------------------------------------------%0D%0ABUG ID: 1008%0D%0ADATLN1: 9j2oih2(2)%0D%0ADATLN2: List index out of bounds (2)

Got headers from a large group (on 3 servers), downloaded about 1,5gig (100 files ?)
then (NL was already running about 8 hours) got headers from another large group (same 3 servers)
half way the 2nd header-download I got this error :

NL was running about 12 hours at the time of the error.
Got windows message : memory too low.
I closed explorer & Internet explorer.
And memory use by NL was at this moment : 600M, but with no other progs running 1,5G was in use.
But NL continued its header-download (closing the other progs liberated 20mb).
NL continued to use more and more memory until almost none was left.
So I closed NL and this liberated 1,25G of memory !

Seems NL didn't clean it's tracks. Or Windows XP SP1 problem ?
In NewsBin I get the same memory problem.... :wink:

I've set my swap file to a fixed size (same as memory 768MB) : so total about 1,5GB
I could set it variable, but I don't like progs this memory hungry
