In this case it was a very common window: an xterm. And I was doing
nothing with it, it was just sitting there and showing
'watch -n10 last'. It is very unlikely that it was unmapped by anything.

This workstation has 32GB of RAM, that's a LOT. And it runs debian
squeeze 64bit. It's very unlikely that you could run out of memory.
Unless sawfish has its internal memory limit, smaller than 32GB.

Crrently sawfish is using: 117MB VIRT, 12M RES, and 4MB SHR according
to htop. Whatever it means. I guess 'virtual', 'resident' and
'shared'. It uses 120MB according to ps auxw. The limit could be at 128MB ?
