O7: Old Mac Classic memory issues ...

we believed there was a memory leak on OS9 Omnis. We told our 
heaviest invoicing Mac operator to quit and restart Omnis at lunch 
time and the problem stopped. We also increased our discipline and 
cleared lists when we were finished with them, rather than leave them 
lying around in RAM.

Cheers, Andrew Pavey
