memory leakage in x server


i've noticed that, after putting my laptop to sleep to RAM, when i awake
it the amount of memory consumed by the X server goes up by 20Mb or so
(this happens under latest sawfish, but not other window managers). it
looks as if, upon having to reconnect to the server (xorg 7.5, with an
nvidia card), sawfish is neither re-using nor freeing the previously
allocated X resources (just a totally uneducated guess: i know very
little about X11)... of course it could also be some bug with the X
driver (i use the proprietary one, fwiw), but then i would expect the
same problem with other wms, and, as i said, i don't observe it.

or is there any other explanation/fix?
