Empirically, this happens the second time, the first one with multiple
cmd.exe open and
csrss.exe getting massively big (but I didn't save any data about it and was happy when it was over).
My memory consumption grew from normal 1,7Gb (I have 1,5 physical) to over 3Gb now, so that is so surprising to see.
I have vim cli installed as a notepad replacement and I powered up
vim. It took time to get started, I wrote a line and typed
:wq and now I'm waiting while VM size of
vim.exe is 1.174.496 K in task manager.
I have a 1.2ghz laptop and was annoyed of cmd.exe's scrollbuffer sizes so I set them all to maximum, like 999.
Do you think that is the problem? What else can cause such huge unexpected memory allocation ... in the end vim.exe is just an editor?
