I ran it for ~5 hours and it increased in size from about 13.25 MiB to 15.45 MiB, which is about 440 KiB / hour. When graphed, it makes a rather straight diagonal line with no interesting features after the first 5 minutes or so.

To measure, I'm just running 'ps axu' once per minute, grepping for the process, and dumping the time and RSS value to a file. I think pmap measures VSZ instead of RSS, which may not produce useful results. Can you try it with an RSS measurement to verify whether it happens outside my environment?

I'm using gworldclock 1.4.4-9ubuntu1 on oneiric x86_64... which seems to be the same version that natty had. I suspect apt didn't even touch it during my dist-upgrade.
