Default Re: Nvidia 9600GT: Xorg process and high CPU usage

Hi have monitored Xorg memory use every hour, and see huge jumps for no obvious reason. Some jumps occur when I was definately only using firefox (ff was ALREADY running, but I visited 3 new sites in different tabs).
Does this help???

FYI, here's the script I ran..
Code:
#!/bin/bash

pid=`ps -ef | grep Xorg | grep /usr/bin/Xorg | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`

top -bn1 -p $pid | perl -ne 'if (m/\S+\s+\S+\s+\S+\s+\S+\s+(\S+)\s.*Xorg/) {
                        my $date=`date`; chomp $date;
                        print "$date : $1\n";
                        }'
