A few days.  I did just restart it however an hour ago and when it restarted
memory use was at:

VmPeak:       40640 kB
VmSize:       40092 kB
VmHWM:        6720 kB
VmRSS:        6720 kB

Currently it's at:

VmPeak:      255088 kB
VmSize:      255084 kB
VmHWM:       23740 kB
VmRSS:       23740 kB

So clearly it's growing, and I believe will continue, without bound since there
is really no long-term accumulating data that should account for a continuous
growth in memory consumption.

The above is from

$ cat /proc/$pid_of_plugin/status

No?  700MB of real memory for a CPU monitor plugin is not insane?  700MB is
more than 100x what it starts out with which is show above at only 6.7MB.

I don't know, but I don't see any evidence of anything else leaking.

libcairo2: 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu3
libgtk2.0-0: 2.24.10-0ubuntu6
