I have a standalone application based on a group of image animations. I have used the Media Tracker class to load images and play the animation. After the animation, images are not freed and the application sends a message of error: Out of Menory. This happens after the application plays only three animations.
(I use a direct call to the garbage collector, but it does not work).

Your answer help me to free some memory with the flush() function, but one third of memory consummed is not freed.
Is this a normal bug? How can I solve this?
