If the driver was leaking pixmap cache, the memory usage wouldn't be in the client application. At first glance, it looks like the abnormal memory usage is caused by a bug in plasma.
What happens to the memory usage of plasma if you VT-switch out and back in the X server?
Huh, I know I upgraded. I guess I'll reinstall .16 after kde is done updating.
Actual memory useage for plasma doesn't change, but pixmap mem does a little, started with 562 pixmaps, 623 "misc" and 217449K pxm mem, after switch back it changed to 475 pixmaps, 536 misc, and 217133K pxm mem.
While no doubt some of the problem lies with plasma, they can't find it, and the largest leak reports seem to be common with the nvidia binary driver only. Not to mention the fact that I need to reboot to get all of my memory back and to get the desktop working properly again.
