Symptoms

When a report is run for the first time from Forms 9i (9.0.2), 10g (9.0.4), or 10gR2 (10.1.2.X) via RUN_REPORT_OBJECT the total memory 'allocated' to the f90webm/frmweb process may rise by 80 to 100 Mb

The memory does not increase significantly after subsequent RUN_REPORT_OBJECT calls, however, it is only released when the end user exits the forms application / session.

(Memory consumption figures may have been obtained via a machine monitoring utility on Unix like top or glance)
