Comment (by Mwd4d0P):

 Having the exact same problem with memory-hogging whenever any of the
 multiple MSN accounts are seemingly connected for days on end--only one
 visibly refuses to connect to MSN with a persistent "Unable to
 authenticate Authentication Failure" message.  It was surprising to see
 the virtual size of the app skyrocket to ~1.8G after a few days.  (Not a
 problem on a new W7 machine with obscene amounts of RAM, but troublesome
 for older, far less robust systems.)

 Also tried rolling back to v2.10.8, but the problem with all MSN
 connections and progressive RAM-consumption still persists.
