Terminal memory leak

An idle Terminal can show slowly rising memory use. Possibly related to tab title updates, which is a periodic event.

I think it can be triggered by opening a full set of tabs and running something long enough to results in tab resizing, e.g. "sleep 3", but I'm not entirely certain about it.

The problem was checked during GCI 2011. Seems to be a bug also on hrev43238.
Three tabs opened in Terminal, when I first checked, it used 3.28MB of memory, few minutes of being idle later, 3.39MB and rising.

I tried to reproduce on a current revision (hrev48742) but couldn't. Granted, it's a gcc4 build, but Terminal with three tabs opened uses 1,59MB and stays like that for all the time.

Not reproducible, and no reply since 6 months (or more). Please reopen if you have a method to reproduce it consistently.
