Anyone notice this issue with Steam on Linux?

I know quite a few of you use Linux here, so I thought I'd ask. Recently whenever Steam is open Xorg seems to be having a memory leak. I've seen it reach over 1 GiB of RAM used if left for long enough. Closing Steam drops the memory usage of Xorg back to normal levels; however doing so causes a massive spike in CPU usage for some time, and at 1 point I had to go to a virtual terminal and manually kill my Xorg session. Upon googling the issue I have noticed this reddit thread where I am certainly not the only person with this issue. I am curious though, how many of you are affected by this?
