yes, it is a freerunner. Memory usage is growing in small steps.
dbus-monitor --system did not show much periodic dbus traffic.
There is more seldom dbus traffic than I can see increases i memory
I have seen this leak quite a while, but it was not on
one of the top places of the list of things which annoy me.

# while true ; do grep -E 'VmRSS|VmSize' status ; sleep 3600 ; done
VmSize:	   21108 kB
VmRSS:	   11948 kB
VmSize:	   22964 kB
VmRSS:	   13760 kB

/tmp/fsodeviced.log shows a lot of lines like this:

2010-07-28T12:04:42.994182Z [INFO]  Kernel26AggregatePowerSupply
</sys/class/power_supply>: Got power status change notification for
$name: $status

and nothing else after init.

I renamed /etc/freesmartphone/fsodeviced.conf (I do not know where it came from,
but I have modified that one)
so that it finds the original /etc/freesmartphone/conf/GTA02/fsodeviced.conf
which I did not modify. I killed fsodeviced and then started it again.

# while true ; do grep -E 'VmRSS|VmSize' status ; sleep 3600 ; done
VmSize:	   11664 kB
VmRSS:	    5112 kB
VmSize:	   12624 kB
VmRSS:	    6148 kB

But the leak is still there.
