Some news?
Hello

I have also experienced this issue but with the latest beta drivers (can't remember the exact version now) after downgrading to 100.14.19 there is no more memory leak, compiz.real memory usage is almost always at about 27-28MB.

By the way, after replacing ATI X1300 in my notebook with nVidia card I am finally a happy Linux user, I am not Compiz visual effects fan, but OpenGL speeds up desktop so much that I can't imagine working on a plain 2D accelerated desktop now

For me it is not really Compiz that explodes, it is Xorg. I can cause the same stuff to happen with Xfce4.4 and I don't even think it needs composite enabled to do so. It also has been happening since maybe a little before the drivers hit 100.x here. Restarting Xorg dumps all the RAM and Swap, don't need to fully reboot.

169.04 slowed the problem down, but it still happens. I've gone all the way back to 97.55 ( on a 2.6.23 kernel D: ) just so I can use my GUI for more than 12 hours at a time - which seems to have worked. Not that I am very happy about that.

Use the open source driver, or don't use Compiz. Compiz is not usable with video or games, way too unstable.

this odd unresponsive behaviour may be caused by the following error displayed in konsole while running "compiz --replace":

This answer doesn't soddisfy me at all. If drivers are bugged, I have to report it. And Nvidia should work in order to make a better product.

As they usually do.

In fact, on my previus post there were a lot of smiling face...

I know, I'm just saying that Compiz isn't stable enoguh. Of course there are bugs in the nvidia driver, and it's good you're trying to help, but to actually have a fully usable system, I wouldn't use compiz. Just my 0.02

I'm sorry if my previous post doesn't look so kind, but my English isn't so good, as you can easily see, so I'm experiencing some problems trying to explain what I would like to say

I understand what you said, but compiz looks so good to me that I'm trying to do everything I can to make it works better.

It's not a so good thing to say, but I think that eyecandies could be a good way to make people switch to the freedom of linux
