Comment 83 for bug 720446

@#81

Seems that the patch Michael submitted made it into mainline (that's my guess) which fixes a pixbuf issue, (constant increase without use) but that there's outstanding issues with lenses, opening the dash, and various other scenarios, which seem to all require use of the system. A constant increase without any usage indicates that maybe the pixbuf stuff wasn't actually resolved.

Can you try using the multiload PPA from bug 779717 and report back if your constant increase issue is resolved in that case? The PPA has a patched version of unity that should have been merged into mainline now, but despite reports since 6/9 that things have improved, I haven't seen an indication that this patch was merged.
