Samuel, can you still reproduce this?

I observed id ports being created and destroyed like they should. The large number of ports after doing find / are likely all pager ports.

00:29 < youpi> how mature is fakeroot ?
00:29 < youpi> it seems my memory exhaustions come from it
00:30 < youpi> the problem being that when it dies, the port it had with ext2fs are not deleted and appear as ports between ext2fs and itself
00:30 < youpi> ("the port*s* it had")
00:38 < youpi> try fakeroot find / -printf '""'
00:38 < youpi> then portinfo 3 | wc -l will show a big number
00:38 < youpi> fakeroot actually doesn't die
00:38 < youpi> and even after killing, portinfo 3 | wc -l still shows a big number
