I see a memory leak in Gnome Shell 3.32.2

The following is top output after several days of uptime:

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES %CPU %MEM ZEIT+ S BEFEHL
864 gdm 20 0 39,6g 1,1g 0,0 3,5 85:04.12 S /gnu/store/3r8h4lygzs06jyx89ffi1y2bbda9s76y-gnome-shell-3.32.2/bin/.gnome-shell-real

RES 1.1g is a bit much.

I tried to capture a coredump with gcore -o /tmp/gnome-shell 864, but
that increased the memory usage to 8g RES before I killed gcore.

Best wishes,
Arne

What is the status of this old bug [1]? Especially since the last merge
of core-updates.

At least on my side (I'm sirgazil), the status remains the same: this is not an issue anymore.

I didn't close the issue, though, because I wanted to hear from other people affected by it first.

So, if Julien and Arne, for example, don't experience the issue anymore, I'm happy to close the issue.

Let wait 15 days and if no answer, let assume it is not an issue and
close it. :-)

Thank you for your feedback.
