however, the png image vanishes quickly.

i debugged it a little and when being accessed directly as

i could see it.

hmm, i can go to it now if i type the dashboard link.

i notice that either it works right away or, if it delays a bit, it vanishes!

Doesn't act like this in my Safari. Also tried Chrome, no problem for me there neither.

Maybe try to save the dynamic PNG to disk, and create a html page with the same source as http://philesight/, but replace the dynamic image by the static image you've just saved. Might give you a pointer as to where the problem lies.

similar in safari - but the image appears blank, then, if a refresh a couple of seconds later, it appears!

same-o in chrome.

this still happens even after a reinstall.

the other complaint is that it generates a very large db:

$ du -ch /tmp/ps.db 
3.6G    /tmp/ps.db

and it does not do it very efficiently, as it takes a lot of CPU to do that nightly (around midnight, I may add, a time at which I am typically awake, so I noticed the slowdowns).
