I recently had a similar problem! Just that the memory consumption is 
happening when I login into kde. When using windowmaker everything is
fine (see also my posting from yesterday about xfs here). It appears, that
the problem is related to some installed fonts. When I delete some fonts,
the amount of memory consumed is less but still very high. I even changed
kernel version to 2.4.16 but still no solution. Maybe the problem is related 
to hardware, my system is a celeron notebook with ati rage pro video card.
What do you use?
