Either top or xfce4-taskmanager, looking at the RSS and VM sizes.  It
hasn't triggered today, but previous days I'll look at my memory usage
after XFCE has been running for a while, and see that I don't have much
free memory.  A quick perusal with top or the task manager then reveals
that xfdesktop4 and xfce4-menu-plugin are both topping out the memory
consumption with 100's of MB each (usually xfdesktop4 is sitting at
17-18MB RSS).

A little bit of testing here running `ps -F` with the xfdesktop4 PID
indicates that its RSS usage grows each time I run `update-menus` (I
notice the exhorbitant memory usage seemingly in conjunction with
updating/installing software).
