Summary: Memory issues 

Initial Comment:
I tried Axel on Ubuntu 8.10, using the package from the Ubuntu repositories.  Unfortunately, when I started the application, it instantly consumed 4 gigs of ram, slowing my computer to a crawl.  I had trouble even opening the system manager, and ultimately had to login to a virtual terminal in order to kill the process. I have no idea what went wrong, but wanted to inform you of the problem I had so that you might be able to check it out.

I don't think we do even allocate a variable number of memory anywhere (except when using the search feature), but I'll look into it. Thanks for reporting!
