Default Xorg Memory Leak

How to repeat:
while [[ $((c++)) -lt 200 ]] ; do 
  M1=$(ps ho rss `pgrep Xorg`) ; 
  M2=$(ps ho rss `pgrep compiz`) ; 
  M3=$(nvidia-smi --query | perl -ne 'print $1 if /Free\s+:\s+(\d+)/') ;
  echo Xorg=$M1 compiz=$M2 nvidia=$M3 
  xterm -fullscreen & sleep 1 ; pkill xterm ;

Default Re: Xorg Memory Leak

Does this problem occur without compiz? Does the extra memory used by Xorg go away when compiz is killed? Finally, if you run xrestop during this test, do you see an increasing number of resources used by the compiz or compiz window decorator processes?
