Be careful - if you don't use --disable-factory, you may be running
the old gnome-terminal process, not the new one.

A caveat here, you have to take what "top" and "ps" say with a huge
grain of salt, especially what they say about the X server... it can
be hard to know if you have a real memory leak or just caching
behavior of some kind. Of course using huge amounts of RAM increasing
over a long period of time is probably a leak, but checking top
immediately before/during/after running an app doesn't always mean
that much.
