  Ubuntu 20.4.1 Gnome desktop leaking memory (SDL2 issue)

In povray.unoffical.patches, In early November I picked up a severe 
performance issue with the preview feature and SDL2.0:

"Performance issue with preview and sdl2.0."

True, I guess, except the severity appears to be tangled in the fact the 
Ubuntu 20.4.1 Gnome desktop is leaking memory over time. This leak 
apparently a known issue for which I'm having to reboot Ubuntu about 
every 10-12 days or so - lest I start to swap. :-(

I've not gotten any of the suggested gnome restart patches to work in 
the sense of actually returning leaked memory. I don't understand enough 
about the desktop to understand why or why not. Maybe it's not Gnome, or 
just Gnome, leaking...
