That's much less than I've seen recently. The really good thing is
that now the system isn't locking up or crashing. It just grinds
to a halt but with about 20 minutes of patient work :^) I can stop
X, and then either get a console up to do some housecleaning and
reboot or ssh in from my phone to reboot. That's a major improvement
over the last few weeks!  Yay!! Thanks!

I say maybe radeon because the more the display changes, the more
memory is leaked. I can just move the mouse around and activate
different windows and watch it change fairly rapidly. If I do jobs
that don't change the display much, the leak rate decreases.
