How much memory should normaly foldit client use?

After time(few days) and multiple clients(mostly 2-4) running my computer gets out of memory, foldit doesnt crash but you can hear disk writes on swap and have 6GB in machine.

I need to restart x windows server to get memory back.

I've noticed this too. The memory leak is in the Xorg module and it gets steadily larger memory footprint. It eventually starts hitting the disk as it pages. Eventually, Foldit cores.

-rw-------. 1 jow Users 512M Sep 27 18:44 core.13871
-rw-------. 1 jow Users 507M Sep 27 19:14 core.16058
-rw-------. 1 jow Users 516M Sep 27 19:40 core.16600
-rw-------. 1 jow Users 517M Sep 27 20:04 core.17313
-rw-------. 1 jow Users 680M Sep 27 20:43 core.17535
-rw-------. 1 jow Users 514M Sep 27 22:30 core.1858x

Some of these cores happen when I exit and try to save a current "try". I'm using gnome 3.0, on a Fedora Core 15. uname -a dump is:
Linux stone.bp #1 SMP Tue Aug 30 14:38:32 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Hope some of this might help.
