So I've never really noticed this before so I'm not sure if it's normal or not. When I watch a video or play a game, Xorg's memory usage increases. After stopping, Xorg's memory is still that high (only about 115-130mb but...). Is it normal for an app not to release memory unless it's needed by another app?

I'm running Xubuntu 11.10 with FGLRX 11.8
