Same problem here with libdrm 2.4.5, intel 2.6.2, Xserver 1.6-rc2,
Mesa 7.3 on
Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated
Graphics Controller [8086:27a2] (rev 03)

Nothing specific needed to reproduce the problem, just use X :)
As soon as I start a big application such as firefox ou thunderbird,
my 1GB RAM is entirely used after a couple seconds and the system
becomes verrrry slow.

Only downgrade intel to 2.6.1 => 200MB used, no problem.
