Now I'd already downloaded and had open 3 other pdf's at the time.
This happened to be bigger, but is a file a little over 1Mbyte, so hardly large.
I closed all okular processes and this had no effect on xorg memory use. It is still 606m.
Does this help?
Is there anything else I can look at to help diagnose this?
