I see this also with xserver-rage128 - it seems to happen when
you load a lot of images (pictures). The memory doesn't seem to
get freed up when the application exits. While it could be a
poorly written app (I see it with xzgv) I think the server should
free the memory anyway on program exit.
BTW: I'm using (mostly) 3.3.6
