Is it possible X died of starvation?

Not too sure what's up, but XFree86's virtual memory footprint was
just about a gigabyte after running GNOME & Metacity for a week. This
never happened to me with KDE or Xfce.

I restarted X last night and it's hovering around 554m right now,
which is already a little intimidating. I've created a cron job to
periodically snapshot its use and what apps are running at the time to
see if I can figure out when and why it's climbing.
