DailyTech reports Intel's new Centrino drivers cause massive memory leaks:
According to DailyTech reader "MercenaryForHire," the Intel S24EvMon wireless management service is having troubles releasing registry handles. This leads to massive memory consumption during regular operation. The steps to recreate the memory leak is quite simple and involves installing the generic Intel PROSet 10.5 control panel and 10.5.1.57 drivers, then monitoring open handles and monitor memory usage of the Intel S24EvMon service.

Our very own Brandon Hill was able to recreate the problem with the latest Intel PROSet driver and an Asus W5F notebook.
