Hummm... That´s nice, but I´m not sure if gnome core components (Yes, I´ve
disabled the same programs as you) shares all that memory along or if I´m
using the wrong information to measure memory consumption. 

I´ve wrote a small script (attached) that uses RSS (Resident Stack Size) as
the measure for memory consumption, but I think (not really sure) that it
includes the shared memory segments, what could lead to wrong data.

BTW, I´ve used this script on a real ThinLinc server, and the memory
measured was exactly the one reported by "free -mo".
