debugging leaks and performance

Christopher Blizzard
Couple of notes.  jdahlin pointed me at this bug:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=348060

which includes some patches for debugging reference counts using
valgrind.  Something we probably should be using.

Second, Matthias pointed me at his patch that disables using shared
memory for image transport to the X server.  This is likely to save a
lot of memory, but we need to see what the performance impact is:
