Seems like we just discovered that there is a difference between the WINDOW_BRING_TO_FRONT, WINDOW_HIDE commands in the SDK and the actual process of minimizing FB2K with the apropriate minimization icon or the System Tray Icon.
It seems that FB2K's memory usage does not go down when using the WINDOW_HIDE command and "minimize Foobar to System Tray" is checked in the preferences.
Just wondering wether this behaviour is intentional or accidental? Since it does not seem to be avoidable.
Thanks for any response.
The details of this problem are discribed in pages 19 - 20 of this thread, http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....3&t=9153&st=475 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=33&t=9153&st=475)
The same issue also occurs when typing the hide command in the Command Prompt, when minimize to Sys Tray is checked
I noticed this in the 0.667 change log
- fixed minor issue with playlist string cache not being erased when minimizing in certain conditions
Did this eliminate the issue you reported?
No. The problem is still there.
Discussed this with Peter once and he said it was an Issue with the Winsows Task Manager. Am not so sure about that though.

I think foobar uses SW_HIDE instead of SW_MINIMIZE.
Problem seems to be solved for 0.7b3.
