It will still be a problem because there is still a leak. Resign yourself to rebooting your device several times a day and wait for a newer, more stable OS to be released.
Just my $.02 CDN.
Several times a day!? Are you CRAZY!? OK, I don't have a bold YET, but I am using a Curve. I reboot it every 2 days, having only 24 megs free at boot, and I generally hard reset at 16megs free. If your phone has 42 megs free, and has SOMEWHAT SIMILIAR leakage, then you can EASILY go 3-4 days.
Rebooting several times a day would seem more as a hassle and not as normal phone usage. In all honesty, I never rebooted my iphone. I loved not having to reboot it. When I also had my HTC Touch, I never rebooted either. Nor with other phones. I know the BB Is more complex then all the simple phones, but buddies.... HAVING to reboot multiple times a day SHOULDN'T be acceptable by US.
If we TAKE it and ACCEPT It, then RIM will always leave these "leaks." thinking that we accept it and we don't mind having to reboot "several times a day."
