"X is using an enormous amount of RAM, is it broken? Is it
memory leaking?" is a very frequently asked question that comes
up way too often. Rather than get into the detailed answer,
which is preserved all over google, and on mailing list archives
for years, the short answer is: No.
The longer answer is: Download a copy of "xrestop", findable
with google, and use it to find the broken applications which are
leaking pixmaps or other X resources.
More of a fedora-list question than a development related one
