Navit memory leak

I did an opkg update & opkg upgrade yesterday, and there were 92 packages
that were upgradable. An updated version of Navit was included, and the
problem is fixed.

$ grep navit pkgs.upgradable.20100201
navit - 1:0.1.0+svnr2902-r5.4.4 - 1:0.1.0+svnr2934-r5.4.4
navit-icons - 0.1.0+svnr2871-r1.4 - 0.1.0+svnr2927-r1.4

The other possibility that I considered is that the display driver may have
had a memory leak, and two xserver packages were updated as well:

$ grep xserver pkgs.upgradable.20100201 
xserver-xorg-conf - 0.1-r18.4 - 0.1-r19.4
xserver-kdrive-common - 0.1-r38.4 - 0.1-r41.4

I don't know if either of those xserver updates have anything to do with the
screen buffer.  I don't even know if any of these packages actually fixed
the problem, but Navit doesn't crash (whatever the cause), and that's what's
important.  :)

Thought there might be someone that's interested in this thread.
