mem leak ...

When I had version 1.4.5.3-2 I posted a query about memory leaks.  Well,
I'd just like to post a further query.  It seems the memory leaks are
less noticable in 1.4.5.55N6 (the version I have now)... but I'm not
sure...  What is the memory and CPU usage like in version 1.5pre7?

I've been running X and AfterStep for the last 23 hours now.  The memory
usage of AfterStep is now 1.3%.  Earlier today it was 1.1%.  However,
the memory usage of X is 19.4% and the CPU usage is 34.4%!!!!!  I'm
using Metro-X on RedHat 5.0.  Does anybody know if this is typical?  Is
XFree better in this regard?  Is it possible that AfterStep is to blame
somehow (as it is working thru X isn't it)?  Or is it the fault of
Metro-X?

Thanks for the support so far on this great mailing list.
