And I usually say that 10 meg PNG images are just not part of Tellico's

I can try to be less conservative about holding on to the image pointers, I 
suppose. The growing memory usage would seem to indicate another memory 
leak, I'll have another go at running valgrind through everything.

The image cache size is initially set by lines 36, as you see, but is later 
changed to match what is in the config file. So you could add 
ImageCacheSize=20971520
in the [General Options] section of your tellicorc file to increase the 
cache size without recompiling.

SQL. And it would be an open question about storing the images in the DB. 
Obviously, your usage pattern would make that a bad idea.

SVN back up

The SVN server is back up. I just checked in a backlog of minor bug fixes 
from the past couple of days. I'll probably be packaging 1.2.5 here in the 
next day or two.

feature request

I've been using Tellico (1.2.4, using kde3.5.2 on a Gentoo system) for a while 
now and I'm very pleased with it.  I use it to keep info on my scientific 
literature (nearly 6000 entries and counting)  Most of these papers are pdf 
and so when I enter the info into tellico I do a lot of cutting and pasteing.  
The feature I would like to see is support for control+J (join lines).  When 
I cut and paste an abstract from the pdf to the entry editor each line has a 
return at the end of it.  Control+J would be extremely useful.  Any chance of 
this being added? 

Thanks
Matt

Re: SVN back up

The anonymous access was supposed to be back on. I just checked it and I can 
do an svn ls. Maybe you caught it at a bad time?

Is CTRL-J a standard shortcut for that command in some other editor? It's 
probably easy enough to add, just not very discoverable. I guess this 
relates to the suggestion that someone else had about making the paragraph 
editor use the Kate part, which would buy highlighting and standard KDE 
text-editing shortcuts.

Ctrl+J is a shortcut used in Kate, Kwrite, and Kile of the programs that I use 
and those three are probably all related underneath.  In nano and openoffice 
write Ctrl+J is used to justify text.

OK. Perhaps I can add an option to use the Kate part for paragraph editing, 
for versions >= 1.3. That should enable shortcuts such as CTRL-J.
