Default Re: Excessive RSS for Xorg

My users are using firefox, but closing applications does not significantly reduce the amount of memory used. In fact, when I did my gdb examination we had closed every user application accessing the X server! We also verified via xrestop that the X server did not show any user applications running.

I now am thinking through the hypothesis that one of our application is issuing some X calls with parameters that are causing the nvidia driver, or X itself, to leak memory. If this is the case, then we do not have sufficient test cases in our test environment to reproduce the exact conditions that expose this problem.
