That's *very* wrong. Really. :)
Something is leaking some sort of resource in the X server; it's
probably an image or something like that. I would suggest closing client
applications one at a time and seeing if any release the resources.
If not, try eliminating likely or unlikely candidates. Something must be
doing it. Background changes, Xplanet, animated demos and other
highly graphical clients are the most likely suspects.
Sufficiently advanced cluelessness is indistinguishable from malice.
