If I press the Ubuntu key over and over, showing the overview of all the
desktops, and then again to return to the normal view of the current
desktop, RSS for gnome-desktop increases rapidly (measurements taken at
15-second intervals.

USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND

/usr/bin/gnome-shell

After kill -1 15805, I get:
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
skelem   27800 14.5  0.5 4072104 362428 tty2   Sl+  12:31   0:06
