Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

I am running Kubuntu Lucid. On first booting, everything is fine, but over time the performance degrades and after about three hours the system need rebooting.

This is on a 4-core, 4GB RAM with NVidia graphics running the closed-source nvidia driver.

Turning off compositing makes no difference. "top" shows Xorg eating CPU.
