I also run the SVN on FC7, I've been having this memory leak issue for the
past month or so, you're not alone in it. So far I have been unsuccessful
at finding the cause. After about 16 hours or so it brings my (very
similar) system down, and I have to reboot. As a workaround I have been
exiting the frontend each time I use it and loading up only when I need to.
At least that way my recordings keep going. I was thinking of putting in a
bug report, but I've never done it before and I honestly don't have any
information that would help the devs track this problem down.
