KDE background program causing X memory leak?

I've set up my KDE background to "Background Program", which runs the

nice -n 19 xplanet --geometry %xx%y -cloud_image ~/.xplanet/clouds_2000.jpg -projection orthographic -latitude 40 -longitude 250 --output %f.jpg && mv %f.jpg %f

at 15 minute intervals.  This is similar to the instructions given in
the xplanet FAQ.

However, every time the background updates itself, X's memory usage
increases by about 8 MB.  Right now, X is using 356MB of RAM, and it
will keep increasing on every update until there's no system memory
left, upon which X crashes.  Apparently, X doesn't free up the memory
used by the previous background images.

Any ideas how to fix this?
