Hi, I thought it appropriate moving this topic to a new thread...

has anybody using file_column had any problems with memory usage? I've
been experiencing progressively bigger dispatchers, til hitting
textdrive limits, not sure if it's file_column itself or something
wrong I'm doing after a model using file_column saves. Been trying to
troubleshoot it at the textdrive forum:

it was pointed out that RMagick might have something to do with it

and I was referred to a proposed solution by manually starting GC (search for "RMagick")

which I haven't implemented successfully, though trying to add
GC.start to a few different places.
