There wasn't anything special for running it, just let it run for a while.
X memory starts going way off after about 500 steps in the example code 
(palette switches to green).

I don't have another machine with display available right now.
I am using xorg-server-, with the nv driver (xf86-video-nv-2.1.12)
[xorg.conf: Option  "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps"]

Perhaps it is an X related bug? Can anyone else test on X11?
