[Seaside] Problem with Seaside: Pharo is almost out of memory

that could happen if you have a recursion problem.

if that's the case them you should have in an piece of your code with something like:


	self initialize.   "<-- note self instead of super"

then it'll eat up your RAM and you will feel the UI become as liquid as solid honey (to put it delicately)

what can you do?

1. freak out
2. kill that process (with activity monitor or task manager or sudo kill -9 pid) then open it again and recover lost changes
3. if you have the patience to navigate the solid honey UI you can try to open a process browser and check the seaside threads, one of them may be the one eating all up (try debugging it with cmd-d)
