Same here - Xorg 7.2 (final), suse user. I just got used to it (I log out and restart X every day).

I wrote a quick program that connects and disconnects from the X server as quickly as possible, and I can reproduce a memory leak with X.org 7.2. An X server built from git does not show this behavior.

Aaron, thanks for your help in finding the commit on trunk that fixed this leak. Memory usage is now stable.

d_knecht,
xorg doesn't use CVS any more, they've switched to git but the idea is the same.
