  memory leak leads to extremely high memory usage

Status in compiz package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Leaving this desktop PC running overnight, while logged in and a bunch
  of windows open, compiz tends to get completely out of control. This
  morning I arrived to it using 5500MB of RAM (pushing some of the
  system into swap and making everything extremely slow). This makes the
  system unusable (as compiz and the memory heavy applications running
  don't fit into RAM anymore, using the desktop is just not viable...)

  The workaround is to kill -KILL compiz whenever it happens.
