The bug still exists in 14.04.1 LTS:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty

Below is a copy of my "xrestop" including the gtk-window-decorator. The "Pxms" counter would increase by about 6 each time I alt-Tab back and forth to another window. The "Pxm mem" would also increase. Neither over level off or decrease. So, this bug still exists and the leak makes me have to close my session every day or two. I'm running out of what should be plentiful memory.
