[PD] Gem or pd leak?

Hooray, finaly got Gem working on my debian machine. The problem was with
old (1541) Nvidia driver which doesn't like new kernels (2.4.17). I went
back to 2.4.7 and now it works. 

Since I am new to OpenGL an Gem, I went through most of the decumentation
patches when I noticed machine getting slugish. It looks like pd/Gem is
not releasing the memory after the patch is closed. Happens with 0.35t11
and 0.34p4. Only closing pd and starting again helps.

Another problem is with .ttf files. Any idea what could be wrong?

error: GEM: text3d: unable to open font:
error: GEM: textoutline: unable to open font:

Fonts are there and are readable:
josef:/usr/local/share/doc/gem/examples/7.text# l *.ttf
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       143258 mar  6 16:26 arial.ttf
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       173586 mar  6 16:26 cour.ttf
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       188960 mar  6 16:26 times.ttf

Is there a way I could set the position of the "gem" window?

Otherwise I am enjoying gem a lot...

Thanks in advance and take care,
