[PATCH] Re: Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf::render_pixmap_and_mask leaks X memory ?

Am I missing something ?

No, you're not. That appears to be a resource leak because of a reference leak in the bindings. gdk_pixbuf_render_pixmap_and_mask() and gdk_pixbuf_render_pixmap_and_mask_for_colormap() return brand-new GdkDrawables, but the bindings do not take ownership of the new objects. The GObjects leak, so the underlying X resources leak.

Please try the attached patch.

I hate to break it to you, but magic data pixies don't exist.
