memory leak

I left my desktop running for a couple of days, and swap usage has 
slowly been growing - just before I rebooted just now it was at 2.1GB, 
and the whole GUI has slowed down.  After reboot, my swap was not used, 
and only about 400Mb of main memory.

How can I find what is using swap, to get a clue as to what it is.
