I wonder how a calling program could make the xorg process leak.  I'm not 
saying that isn't what's happening, but I can't think of a scenario that 
would allow that to happen.

Anyway, my bet would be on a video driver.  Especially if you're using either 
the ATI or the NVIDIA drivers.

But no, I have no idea how to root out the culprit either.
