#158: textreplace memory error
Reporter:  maphew  |       Owner:  osgeo4w-dev at lists.osgeo.org
    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new                        
Priority:  major   |   Component:  Installer                  
 Version:          |    Keywords:  apt                        
 Installing [wiki:pkg-sip sip] with [wiki:pkg-apt apt] the computer appears
 to hang during postinstall at the textreplace stage. Cpu usage is low,
 around 12%, and python.exe memory use climbs slowly but inevitably until
 it errors out tens of minutes later.
 C:\>apt install sip

 I've encountered this once or twice before but didn't pause to document
 it. I don't recall if it's always with the same package, or even always
 textreplace (a vague recollection of dll-dupes). Running textreplace
 manually on sipconfig.py.tmpl from o4w shell returns in seconds.

 Host system is win7x64. Same results with apt from svn and package.
