I noticed that memory usage of i3 went from <5M in i3-4.4 to ~26M in i3-4.5.

Before opening a bug report, I want to see if other folks are hitting similar issue or it's just me.

I'm using package from fedora 18 testing, but I can rebuild the package with different options if necessary.

I saw someone having this issue but not sure which distro he/she is using:

How did you check the memory consumption. Maybe I can reproduce it on Fedora 17 where I have 4.5 running.
