When Xvfb is used it leaks memory.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start Xvfb
    /usr/bin/Xvfb :1 -screen 0 1024x768x8 -nolisten inet6 -fp unix/:7100 &
2. export DISPLAY=:1.0
3. In a loop start the following command an kill it with Ctrl c:

Actual results:

On a system generating lots of pictures I saw Xvfb using nearly 2GB of memory
after approx. 10 days.

Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, please, could you reproduce this bug with
the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX/INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
