 So you are no longer ignoring exceptions from drawing, and it still leaks?

+the current state:
+- the installation of the newest gdi-lib-files avoided problems with 
+System.Drawing on SLES
+- I'm not sure if there is a memory leak with mono on SLES or not. I 
+begin to think that there is no leak.
+some explanations about what I see on my 4 GB RAM machine and what I 
+- the memory usage is displayed in the picture memory_ram.bmp
+- I started my application at 09:17
+- The value for the used memory on the machine goes higher and higher 
+and reached the maximum at 11:00
+- The memory used by my application hold a constant value like it is 
+documented in the file memory_top.txt
+- A problem that I had with older gdi-libs was that I got an 
+exception with the message that  to less memory was available. This 
+message is gone up to now. But this message made me believe that mono 
+is taking the memory.
+* Now I'm starting to think that the operating system SLES consumes 
+that RAM for a reason that I didn't know. I'm not an unix expert and 
+windows is totally different.
+* I'll wait and see how my application runs over the next days.
