Default Memory problems

Hi all-

My system has memory problems which i think are due to the nvidia driver. It seems that shortly after restarting X top reports that essentially all of my 1 Gb RAM is used, 280M of which is taken by X:

Mem: 1033164K total, 1005376K used, 27788K free, 291224K buffers
Swap: 979924K total, 3640K used, 976284K free, 521916K cached
...
PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME COMMAND
17380 root 15 -10 280M 23M 4428 S < 4.3 2.3 3:03 XFree86

I'm using nvidia version 1.0-4191 with X 4.2.1 under Debian (running Gnome).

I'm not running anything too fancy (openGL games). This seems to happen even if i just run xmms, gnome mixer, and some xterms.

s it normal for X to hog ~300 mb, and is there any way to figure out if the nvidia driver is the culprit for my memory loss, and is it possible to fix...?

many thanks!
