X Server with Matrox G400/SH/16 allocates too much memory
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
X Server with Matrox G400, Single Head, 16 MByte.
After 3-4 hours of working, X Server memory allocations grows up to 40 MByte, and more.
I need to restart Gnome to reset memory allocation.
the server often appears to allocate much more memory than it is actually
using; This is normal, and the memory is mapped, but not actually consumed.
