I have Mozilla 1.3 on my Linux system.  Here's a peak at memory use
after some time, in megabytes:

Virtual             98.8
Swap                10.0
Resident            88.0
Code                148K (kilobytes)
Data                88.0
Shared              26.0

So you can see that most of Mozilla's memory use is data, not code.  

If you take a close look at most programs, it seems like even though the
code is often bloated, the memory use is what is really going up.

I don't know why Mozilla is has 88MB of data allocated, and it seems to
be stable so I'm not sure its leaking like earlier versions.
