Default Re: Excessive RSS for Xorg

Today I ran Xorg under strace and can cannot see the mmap operations for the memory section that is growing (I can see the mmaps for the section right before it, though). From this I conclude that it is the nvidia device driver that is allocating this memory. Since I think I have exhausted what I can run down, I think we will get an ATI firemv board and see if the problem still happens.
