[Webtest] Re: out of memory

Hello Stefan,

We've got an OutOfMemory problem too (on Linux and on Windows) and I've just 
found a way to solv it. Perhaps it is the same cause by you:

We have individual webtests in individual files and a master build file that 
runs all the tests. The OutOfMemory first appeared when the number of webtests 
grows over ~30. I've found that I was defining the webtest tasks with an 
included &definition; in each individual webtest file and changing it to define 
the webtest tasks only once in the master build file has solved the problem.

Hoping this helps.

Marc.
