Wallpaper slideshow memory leak

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

I'm experiencing memory leak with xorg in both lucid and maverick if I set an .xml file for wallpaper slideshow. Xorg gets all the memory up to 4GB in few minutes. Using top, I saw memory usage increased when wallpaper changes. Because it changes every 5 secs, lacking is totally out of controll. Disabling compiz the issue seems disappeard, even though (with top as well) leaking is still there (but slower than when compiz is running)

I created this .xml when I was under natty. Yesterday I installed back both lucid and maverick and I found this problem
