RAM shortage - X server bug?
I'm running ninan (a java news downloader), and I've noticed something WEIRD: I use Mozilla to monitor the status of ninan (ninan sets a local http server), and if I leave mozilla open the X server started getting bigger and bigger (last time it blocked my system after growing larger than 750MB).
Since I have the "backingstore" option in the X server (xorg 2.6.13), and mozilla is continuously reloading the page, I believe that X is backing up each "reload" of mozilla until it bloats the system.
Is this possible? I've been running the system continuously for 4 days (using mozilla to check on ninan briefly and sparingly), and X has remained at 50 MB. Before, in some hours, X was over 500 MB.
BTW, this problem did not happen when I was running SuSE 9.3 (I'm now using 10.1).
Thanks for any ideas / comments you may have.
