Okay valgrind --log-file=/tmp/gnome-panel.valgrind gnome-panel is running.
horribly slow but I'll try to keep working with it. How long should I run it ?

Well, if you can run it for a few days, that'd be great -- I know it's horribly
slow, though, so I guess you'll stop it when you'll be really annoyed ;-)

btw, before I left for the holidays I installed an 11.1 on another machine and
let it run in it's initial state. There seems to be no memory leak on that
machine. Now if I compare that machine to my machine I have a strong feeling
that it's the System Monitor which I have running on my machine that eats all
the memory.

Things that I have running additionally to that other machine
- System Monitor
- Workspace switcher
- Logout buttons
- Mini Commandline

Hrm. The thing is that the only in-process applet is the workspace switcher
(and the logout buttons). The commandline and system monitor applets are
out-of-process, and so the leak shouldn't appear in gnome-panel for them. But I
fail to see how the workspace switcher would leak for one person and not for
the thousands of other people out there...
