xf86-video-intel memory leakage

I have xf86-video-intel master from git and kernel 2.6.29-rc3 at
commit b1792e367053968f2ddb48bc911d314143ce6242.

I have to say that I also merged wirless-testing and
drm-airlied/drm-fixes (Merge: 9ceb716... ac048e1...)
Anyway the problem appears only with UXA , with EXA I could  start
Xorg, but have no direct rendering.

My card is (from Xorg.log):
(**) intel(0): Option "AccelMethod" "UXA"
(II) intel(0): Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) 945GM
(--) intel(0): Chipset: "945GM"
