This increase in numbers is consistent, and was caused simply by Right-Clicking on knetworkmanager and hitting escape... over and over again.

It seems that "Maximum clients reached" is more a symptom of it's own bug classification, which is indicative of any application not managing its X resources carefully.

All applications (in all distributions) should undergo testing to prove they have no "X resource leakage" so to speak. Clearly writing a desktop systray-applet that misses reclaiming an X window here and there doesn't seem like that big a deal.... but apparently many apps are causing a big problem.

How do we proceed???
