I have seen this in the past, but only with the info above I was able to
find a reliable way to reproduce this.  

It also happens with the lucid toolkit, so it's not related to gtk.


Xnest :1&
xterm -display :1

Now in that xterm window in Xnest do:
emacs -Q -nw
C-z

kill the Xnest window

and watch the emacs process grow in size.

pstack shows it's doing things like this:

Unfortunately I can't investigate more now.
