Description of problem:
For a simple CD player, gnome-cd consumes much more memory than is absolutely
necessary - even for a simple GTK2 application.  gnome-cd, since it is the main
selection for Gnome 2, should have its fat trimmed aggressively.

Oddly enough - upon running memprof on gnome-cd, my system locks up until I kill
(from a virtual terminal) all associated processes to memprof and gnome-cd.

Should report this one on, presumably involves
fairly pervasive code changes we would not do in a Red Hat specific patch.
