top reports 193MB for Xfree86 for me (including 32MB Framebuffer + IO space)
seems still a bit much, but i didn't notice any growth in mem usage so far.
but, if you have an app with an memleak, it's not necessarily the X driver:
if a program allocates a shared pixmap the space gets accounted for X,
although it belongs to the program.
just to come back on topic: 8-)
i read a bugreport on the kde-develop archives, that a recent build
of kde2.2 cvs has/had a memleak in the display of desktop background pictures
which resulted in growth of Xfree86..
maybe its something like that.
