I'm also hit by that bug. I do not use gnome though, and the 
.gnome-session-real process is owned by gdm. Ram usage is at around 200MB when 
starting and after a few days (putting the laptop to sleep during the night), 
it got to 2.4GB, even though I don't really need or use it beside logging in. 
After another restart, it was at 600MB after a day. That memory usage is 
ridiculous :/
