Okay, I've updated my machine at home to the latest releases of
libzvt/gnome-terminal (1.115.2-1 and 1.9.6-2) and I don't get the
leaks.  Starting 30 gnome-terminals results in a lot of memory use but
not extravagant amounts, and closing them all with a 'killall
gnome-terminal' results in the memory being freed.  The same experiment
at work resulted in a massively bloated X server.

The difference between the machines?  Home (no leaks) is Debian Sid,
work (leaks) is RedHat 7.2.  Both are up to date package wise.
