Question Re: 185 Drivers Consuming CPU

Is it the user or kernel space load that grows ?

What about the memory usage of Xorg process ? Is that also growing ?

I'm asking because that was happening to me only when using firefox2. With firefox3 the Xorg memory growth is eliminated. Maybe similar can be caused in terms of CPU load.
Have you tried terminating some X clients ?

I'm not saying that the nvidia driver is not buggy, but if you find the client that provokes this then it may be easier to find out what the driver does in that case.
