I'm running Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 on my desktop. Ever since the update from 13.04 there is a very annoying memory leak. I know from my conky stats that gnome-shell is the culprit. And that it consumes about 1GB every 6 hours or so, minimum. Even when in standby mode! It is 100% reproducible. all I need to do is turn the computer on and in 2 days all my memory and swap is consumed. I have not checked to see if this happens on any other system, or on a clean USB boot. But the community seems content so I think it's just me.
How do I go about logging this so I can post a bug report? I know nothing about development for ubuntu, or even how things are developed in a community. But I would really like to identify this leak ASAP so a fix can be made. I'm not a complete beginner, but i have just never needed to debug my system before.
