20M is a bit much (with 7M shared), but normal, 300M definitely is a big
memleak :/

I know he fstab plugin used to have a leak in version 0.1 (IIRC), but can't
remember anything else.

I did find a memleak when repeatedly killing and restarting xfce-msc-manager
(still no idea why), but that seems to be unrelated.
