All I can say is it's not an isolated problem:
769 root 96 0 442M 420M select 432:31 5.22% 5.22% XFree86
I have 96M of video memory total (dual head, a 64MB nv and a 32MB mga).
xrestop shows about 55M used by pixmaps. That still leaves over 250M of
memory unaccounted for.
It seems to slowly grow over time, so I still suspect a memory leak somewhere.
I've just gotten in the habit of restarting X every week or so... (note:
this is with XFree86 4.4, installed from a test version of the port someone
posted a while back. Same thing happened with 4.3 as well).
