A friend of mine has the same problem, the machine is slowly filling
up all available memory, rendering it to the point of useless. :(
He runs X and an automated backup system, so a lot of inode/fs
access is in done each day.

Below are some datapoints:

# uptime
7:21pm up 4 days, 18:57, 2 users, load average: 1.07, 1.06, 1.09
