Memory leak in xorg-6.8.1?

I am using SuSE 9.2 with the contributed xorg-6.8.1-15. When running the new
Adobe Reader 7beta, the process "X" starts to eat up all available memory and
also the swap space. I have a NVidia Geforce-4600 Graphic card with the
driver version "1.0-7174" from the NVidia Web Site.
"ps" outputs this:
root 5815 8.7 46.3 726484 359404 ? SL 07:21
When opening some .pdf-files the RSS-size increases:
root 5815 8.7 47.5 726484 368724 ? SL 07:21
When heavily working with the Adobe Reader the swap space gets filled up and
the machine is getting very slow.
When closing the Adobe Reader the RSS-size stays roughly the same.
It seems that also other applications, like Firefox trigger this problem, when
surfing a lot, the XOrg memory usage is getting high, although when closing
Firefox there is also memory freed - but not all.
Maybe that there are some bugs in the Adobe Reader/Firefox but to my mind this
is also a XOrg problem.
Are there any known fixes to my problem?
