Re: VSZ memory of X

Hmm. Just last night, I decided it was time to go to sleep once my X got
up to 192M of VSZ and 120M RSS. While quitting, my machine hung. :-/
Sysrq was good enough to sync and unmount, but not reboot. Oh well.

Has anyone else noticed strange memory use with recent phase2 .debs?
