This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Dear Emacs Developers,

I am using one instance of Emacs as my desktop background, running it
in a transparent rxvt.  One of the features I use there is a terminal
running the top-programm.  Over the time this uses more and more
memory. 

To reproduce:
shell> emacs -q
# in emacs:
M-x term 
/bin/bash RET
# at shell prompt in emacs:
top RET
# in top programm (just to make it faster)
s 1 RET

I think that term.el is version 4.0 (from the line 
;;; V4.0 January 1997
in the Changes section)


Hope this helps.
Kind Regards
Stefan Kamphausen
