Subject: memory usage for large sites is enormous
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 131b
When loading larger sites, the memory allocated by Mechanize is extremely large. For instance, a 20M site takes up 400M of memory.

When you say 'loading a larger site', what's your usage pattern? What sequence of commands that you are using that leads to this condition? Mark
Modify your stack_depth parm in your constructor. See the docs for details.

Please give us something to go off of, then. How do you know it's using so much memory? Give us some sample code that causes the problem.
