Gah, xmms has a memory leak. I discovered this when firefox got killed after my machine ran out of memory and swap space (that's 1.5 Gb total). And once again, Session Saver doesn't come to my rescue, or at least not for all the windows I had open. xmms got killed sometime after firefox, because it was still running and leaking merrily away.
I'm keeping a closer eye on it now, and it looks like its total memory usage grows by up to 100 Mb per hour. Sheesh.

XMMS 1.2.10 on FreeBSD 5.1 isn't leaking any memory as far as I can tell... have had it running all day, and it's only 13.8meg, 8meg resident of that.
Might be those pesky penguins that are doing something fishy to your system... ;-P
