Firefox 3 Beta 5 - Memory Leak Screenshots

I know that it's still in beta, and I appreciate the speed increases over Firefox 2, but damn it, I thought the memory leaks were supposed to be a thing of the past? Posted for no other reason than I thought it was funny. I love Firefox. Really.

Below: Firefox consuming an ungodly 1.33GB of RAM, while utilizing 49% CPU.

Below: notice the ramp-up before my page file finally caps out, coinciding with the sudden hang of the program (50% CPU usage).
