For me, the problem is that Gnome = leakware.  The sawfish I've just
restarted eats up 26M of virtual memory, and at the same time the
gnome-panel I just killed eats up another 30M.  After being killed that now
sit at 8M and 13M respectively.  Of course some of the apps simply shouldn't
need that amount of memory, like gnome-terminal.  I don't use it, and stay
with rxvt, though.
