Might the pixmap cache end up holding data for svg paths that are no longer being used by any instance of Plasma::Svg? (perhaps this was the memory leak you mentioned).

Ah, that make sense. :-) Although it does raise one additional question for me. I'm not sure if it is the intended use but is it possible/desirable that Plasma::Svg might be used without Plasma::Theme (for example to render non-theme-related svg files).
In any case are theme parameter changes the only vector for changes that might warrant a clear/refresh of svg related cache data? (sorry that was two questions...).
