If you have a way to reproduce this, could you test with xfdesktop (rc2). It's not available in unstable but I can provide you
packages for i386, ppc or sparc64. Upstream is aware of memory leaks in
xfdesktop but it's really hard to reproduce (here I can't).

See for example:

I know this can be really a pain, but the only current solution is to
restart xfdesktop from time to time.
Yes, I know.
