| What is happening is that the X server slowly allocates more memory until all

| processes, eventually killing the X server.


My X 4.3.0 Server under -current doesn't really go above 150M, I've got a
radeon, DRI enabled.  I also run xscreesaver and DPMS. I've never had it go
bananas like you're describing. I also run at a fairly high res (1920 x 1440).

drm0: <ATI Radeon If R250 9000> port 0xd800-0xd8ff mem
0xe7000000-0xe700ffff,0xe8000000-0xefffffff irq 11 at device 0.0 on pci1

I'm using Windowmaker and wdm, a combination of Mozilla and Opera for
browsing, both of which are resource hungry and buggy.
