Log from where the leaking request came.

When Tor says (in the Vidalia log):

Potentially Dangerous Connection! - One of your applications established a connection through Tor to "IP:PORT" using a protocol that may leak information about your destination. Please ensure you configure your applications to use only SOCKS4a or SOCKS5 with remote hostname resolution.

could Tor tell what port the connection was made from? Maybe the log could include SOCKS details (like username). I don't think it isn't able to identify the application.

Sure it's bad to use random stuff with Tor, but this information makes it easier to sort out applications that leak.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
