[NTLK] Decreasing Heap issue

Last night I installed the NewtCase Extension Manager version 2.0 on my
upgraded 2000. After fiddling with the software for awhile, I decided to
remove it and the Extras drawer icons it had created. So far, no problem.

After Extension Manager was removed, I noticed that my available heap
storage was decreasing by about 1024 bytes every few seconds. I watched my
available memory decrease from about 410K to 350K and then did a reset.
When Newton reset and came back to life this same thing happened all over
again. Every few seconds, a little more memory was lost.

I should point out that I am using Avi's Back Drop v 1.24 and that when I
tap on the heap number it does go back up to near what it should be but,
then starts the downward cycle all over again.

My Newton NEVER DID THIS BEFORE! What does this mean? Is it a problem? How
can I fix it?
