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

seaweed, I believe I've repro'd your problem; on my ION using MPlayer, /proc/meminfo's MemFree went from ~600M to ~300M overnight.

Can you confirm the following:
* Using xrandr or nvidia-settings to change your video resolution doesn't free the leaked memory.
* What about if you VT-switch away?
* What about if you log out of X?
* Killing the X server does free the leaked memory.
