I'm running X from ArchLinux distribution version 1.4.2 togheter with KDE 4.1 from SVN. The bug appeared also when runnnig KDE 4.0.5.
The system activity from KDE show me when I login thought kdm that X process uses more than 40mb. When running it a few hours it increases the memory usage to over 90mb.
It's important to note that i'm using the nvidia proprietary driver.
Also, when composite is enabled (kwin desktop effects) it leaks more memory, i mean, leak faster.
What can I do to track the problem?
Can you cross-check with Bug 14639 please? may be a dupe.
Peter, I'm not sure how to run the strings command, i've tried
$ strings /dev/sda6 |fgrep org.freedesktop.DBus.Local|wc
57 57 1540
/dev/sda6 is the swap device, but actually i'm not using any swap.
i've tried from /dev/mem, and got:
bash-3.2# strings /dev/mem |fgrep org.freedesktop.DBus.Local|wc
140 1244 27183
Uhm, actually running
$ strings /dev/mem |fgrep org.freedesktop.DBus.Local
returned a lot of repeateds org.freedesktop.DBus.Local, each one on a single line.
Does that confirm the other bug?

Yep, marking as duplicate.
