I have seen something similar. Has not happened for a while, but basically
it was when I open Dolphin (the KDE 4 file manager) and browse a lot of
local directories that have pictures in them, open some of them in Gwenview
(KDE 4's generic viewer), and page from to the next.
After that, I feel that the laptop becomes sluggish, and memory usage soars.
The difference is that /usr/bin/X was the one that I see grew larger in this
theorizing that it is a memory leak in X.
As I said it has not happened in a while, so either the leak was fixed, or I
not been browsing the albums that much lately.
