Remember to cover the basics.  Including a minimal LaTeX example
file exhibiting the problem might help.

I have the following problem in xemacs when I select a region
containing inline images using the mouse and then hit the "cut" button.
The memory consumption  of the xemacs process goes through the roof. Not
a huge problem for small files, but for latex documents of order 40
pages (80 kb) or so,  my machine memory (256M) gets used up. Once the
process starts swapping memory out to disk, the whole box effectively
locks up.

Emacs  : XEmacs 21.4 (patch 12) "Portable Code" [Lucid]
(i386-redhat-linux, Mule) of Thu Feb 20 2003 on porky.devel.redhat.com
Package: rel-0-7-8

Nick?  That would seem like a problem in your ballpark?
