[Bug 740258] [NEW] Pixmap memory leak in gtk-window-decorator


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

My Xorg process memory usage continues growing over time. Here it is
after a few hours:

1498 root      20   0  426m 253m  20m S   12  6.4  12:10.87 Xorg

I have used xrestop to see where the memory is going. Here is the

xrestop - Display: :0.0
          Monitoring 42 clients. XErrors: 2
          Pixmaps:  215589K total, Other:     105K total, All:  215694K total

Is there anything else I need to do ?
