When I do:

   $ emacs -Q --daemon

followed by:

   $ while true; do emacsclient -t -e "(save-buffers-kill-terminal)"; done

then the daemon apparently consumes increasingly more memory.

Aha: Emacs wasn't freeing the frame face cache on tty frames.  Fixed.

This, plus a couple of other leaks in term.c that I fixed earlier this
week, accounts for about 95% of the leakage you reported.

There remains a smaller leak occurring in Lisp: see

http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2008-12/msg00443.html

I'll continue looking into that, but it's less urgent because that leak
is much, much slower.  In the meantime, I'm closing the bug.  Thanks for
reporting.
