Summary0015760: Memory leak in X server
DescriptionMemory of the X server grows rapidly when running UI tests to the point where the kernel kills the X server
Steps To ReproduceRun the following groovy script and watch the memory of the Xorg process via top. You may want to vary the loop count and sleep time.

import javax.swing.JFrame
import javax.swing.SwingUtilities

def f = new JFrame("Test frame")

for (def i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
        f.setSize(600, 400)
    } as Runnable)
    } as Runnable)

Additional InformationWe've been running these test on CentOS for many months. The issue started to appear after the 7.6 update.

I could reproduce the above with the default openJDK as well as an Oracle JDK 8. The same script has no issues on an Ubuntu 18.4 machine or my Suse machine where memory of the Xorg process stays constant while the script is running.
