It seems OpenJDK 7 u85 IcedTea 2.6.1 is leaking memory as described in
this Arch Linux bug report:

As explained, with OpenJDK 7.u85 IcedTea 2.6.1:

- VisualVM, Netbeans, IntelliJ seam to make allocated pages go higher and higher
- Neither TuxGuitar nor Eclipse exhibit this issue

With OpenJDK 7.u79 IcedTea 2.5.5, none of the mentioned application leak

I have been through IcedTea and OpenJDK bugs but could not find any
relevant pointer. Could anyone confirm I haven't missed anything? I
guess this would be enough to open a new bug report then?
