This is a very serious problem as it consumes all system memory adn causes other applications to crash. It is totally unuseable and intolerable and is simply shoddy and sloppy programming. I know for a fact XFree86 did not leak memory like this, XFree86 started at about 25 MB and stayed there. What is going on here? Every since the project was started the quality of X distribution has plummeted drastically.
