comment How to find and report memory leak
The problem is that the memory usage goes up and up and up. Note that the swap area is completely full and by this point the computer is almost completely unresponsive. I am aware that linux uses free RAM as a disk cache which is normally relinquished when any other program needs it but in this case it doesn't seem to be working like that and the system slows down to a crawl, the only way to recover from it is to kill the graphics application.

comment How to manually re-saturate a window after it has been unresponsive
That's useful to know, thanks. It would be good if there was a way to unfade just a single Window but this is definitely a step in the right direction. I'll accept your answer for now.

comment Unity 3D Display Lag
Yes I do have a swap partition. The issue seems to have got better recently, although after a while it slows down again, restarting the computer seems to make it more snappy again. It's not as bad as when I posted the original question.
