Default System memory/resource leak with repeated vdpau based h264 decode

I am using an ION platform running ubuntu 9.10 and driver version 256.35 to decode an H.264 encoded file repeatedly, running top shows the total system memory used creeping up slowly at a rate of about 8 meg per 15 minutes or so. I suspect that this is being chewed up by XOrg although I cant say for sure. I also tested with mplayer VDPAU patched version 4789364 and the results are the same. Without any video playing, the total system memory looks to be stable. I updated xorg-server package and current version is 2:1.6.4-2ubuntu4.3. Has anybody else seen this problem?
