Anyone else experiencing leaks in Xorg?
I have a root window image that updates ever five minutes. I thought
I saw somewhere were that might be the leak, but I couldn't see it
leak by updating my root window.
For me it has always been process related. X seems to develop some insane
memory leak and then when I close the offending process things are ok again.
Can't recall now what where suspect culprits (I think it was something either
web/flash related or dri).
Try closing programs when that happens and see after each one if things go back
I have had problems with a javavm eating up memory. It seems to be
getting started by firefox and then memory and swap just disappear as
the system slows to a near halt. The last time I killed the javavm, it
took out firefox with it. It freed up about 10MB of real memory and
about 240MB of swap. The system immediately started to respond normally
