Viewing Xorg memory consumption : xrestop

For some reason Xorg on my desktop was using around 1400MB virt memory after 14 days uptime. (really, it filled up all my RAM and swap).

Asked at #fedora, and ivazquez mentioned xrestop. And so I installed it, ran it, and walla, the culprit was gnome-screensaver with 999MB RAM consumption (wtf!?!).

Killed it, and the RAM/Swap usage drop from 99%/99% to 44%/0%. Yay!.
