gnome-software sometimes has high memory usage
Submitted by Branko Grubic (bitlord)
This is maybe related to bug #783662 but I see often after boot gnome-software process and packagekitd running in the background using which I consider a lot of memory while idle. This is case when I never started it during this session and also have no updates checking enabled (which is why I think this could be related to that bug report).
My system currently has 5901M memory reported by 'free -m' and after 4h of uptime packagekitd and gnome-software still running:

Running: PackageKit-1.1.6-2.fc26.x86_64 gnome-software-3.24.3-1.fc26.x86_64
Is there a way I can provide more information?
