Ticket #783 (closed defect: fixed)
VirtualBox hogs memry when copying files -> fixed in SVN

I'm trying to copy lots of small files (25000+ files, total size about 1GB) using Shared Folder with Linux as host and Windows XP as guest. I've set VM to have 512MB of RAM, and at the beginning, VirtualBox does not use much more. But after about 20% of files is copied, it starts to eat a lot of ram (it was 1.2GB when I stopped it), finally eating all available RAM.
Looks like there is a serious memory leak in shared folders code.
