When arma ran valgrind on the unit tests the other day, he found over 1100 memory leaks.

21:41 < nickm> actually, the insight I'm getting is tht these are mostly in test
s that other people wrote.
21:41 < nickm> My conclusions are:
21:41 < nickm> 1) Wow, a lot of people have been writing tests!  That's awesome!
21:42 < armadev> :)
21:42 < nickm> 2) I need to add valgrind to my acceptance tests for test patches
; I have apparently been sloppy about seeing leaks in test code.

I've started working on this in branch "valgrind_tests" ; I am down to 29 leaks.

Branch "valgrind_tests" is ready for review. It has a fix for all of the leaks but #11649, which is an actual bug.

(There are changes outside of src/test here, but those are just to expose some _free() functions and the like)

Merged to 0.2.5. The changes to the main codebase seem (on inspection) to be small and correct; the test fixes are bigger, but they still look okay, and we'll soon find out if the tests are broken.
