The fix is simple:

    in the gtk pixmap theme init code we need to do:

    gdk_imlib_get_cache_info (&old_pixmaps, &old_images);
    gdk_imlib_set_cache_info (TRUE, TRUE);

And on theme shutdown we need to do:

    gdk_imlib_set_cache_info (old_pixmaps, old_images);

Mind if I apply this patch to gtk-engines?

The reason I dislike the Imlib cache for pixmaps is because for the
non-pixmap case we end up keeping 500k of data around that are
unreleasable.  10 GNOME programs running would ammount to 5 megs of
usually unused and unreleasable information.  30% of most workstation
