Ubuntu 9.10 with gnome, linux kernel 64 bit, version: 2.6.31-20,
xorg version : xorg-server 2:1.6.5+git20091107+server-1.6-branch.2dbcb06a-0ubuntu0sarvatt~karmic
NVIDIA Driver version: 256.44

I ran the following script for about an hour


while true; do
glxgears -fullscreen &
sleep 2
xkill -id $(xwininfo -name glxgears | grep "Window id" | cut -d' ' -f4)

Here is the results:

before running script, with x running (all in MB):

used : free: total:
44480 1494828 1539308

After running script, with x running :

used : free: total:
544201 995107 1539308

After exiting to console:

used : free: total:
544201 995107 1539308

After killing X:

used : free: total:
454201 1085107 1539308

After restarting X:

used : free: total:
507776 1031532 1539308

Finally, it didn't repro on a bare X server. Can you try you application running just plain X and maybe a simple window manager and see if your problem goes away?
I will do it but I don't think this is an issue, I will confirm
