 I determined that it was using ~4GB of memory using top; I have munin
running on my system, and the physical memory usage for applications
was constantly increasing. After killing xfce-terminal, the memory
usage dropped.

 I was running xfce4-terminal on gnome-shell (3.0.2-8). To get valid
valgrind traces, I have to install the debug version of
xfce4-terminal, don't I? Let me know if this is the case, so I can run
valgrind on the correct binary.
