XFCE using too much memory

Hi, I recently posted one question regarding a huge difference in memory usage in laptop and desktop after boot.

Why two linux systems has different memory usage for same processes?

Turns out I had the icon theme I use in two different locations, /home/sourav/.icons and /usr/share/icons. So that was the reason for 200 MB more memory usage right after the boot. Is this worth a bug report?

Interesting. I just tested the Papirus theme and it uses 30MB less ram for me from ~/.icons. Perhaps a bug report is worth it.

Re: XFCE using too much memory

Yes, so weird. It wasted 200 MB for my laptop if I keep the icons in two different locations and use that icon pack. All the services were using huge amount of memory as you probably have seen in the question on unix.stackexchange. I have seen this issue for a long time, but I didn't care. Yesterday I insisted on knowing the actual cause of the 200 more memory usage than my desktop, and I found out it's just duplication icon problem ?♂️ This is probably a bug that should be reported I think...
