I can reproduce the bug in Debian jessie by running the
power-manager-plugin applet on a laptop only using wall power and
having a fully-charged battery.  In the past 30 days the system's
OOM-killer has twice killed the applet, despite this machine having
~6 GiB RAM otherwise free.

I've tried also with Phil Davidov's 0002-memory-leak-fix.patch
(thanks!), which may have helped fixed some memory leaks, but apparently
not all of them.

The upstream bug report https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12367
points to a glib2 upstream commit/backport:

The version of glib2.0 in Debian stretch has that patch already applied,
but jessie does not.  Applying that patch against glib2.0 in jessie, I
actually *still* see the resident size of my power-manager-plugin
applet increasing over time.

I'm unfortunately unable to run valgrind on this machine.
