Flash, eh?  I imagine this is in Firefox.  As I recall, later versions 
of Firefox, from 3.0 on, talked to the X server such that they caused 
the X server to hold onto DRAM.  In some cases, even 256MB wasn't quite 
enough.  This is going back a few years, in the LTSP 4.2 days.  
Konqueror didn't seem to have that memory-hogging effect in X, but 
Firefox does.

Any chance of giving this a shot in, say, Konqueror and seeing if it 
still happens?
