I'm not seeing the X server leak on my systems. Here's example of
15:09:24 up 8 days, 14:02, 3 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
# top -p 1054
PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME CPU
1054 root 15 0 21212 1372 448 R 0.0 0.2 0:09 0 X
We do most work remotely though in terminal session.
The only other issue that I am aware of is the problem with updating
glibc on RH9. This caused a lot of pain due to NPTL issue and caught
some people completely offguard. There is a redhat bug open on this.
I'm happy with RH9 so far.
