Comment(by anonymous):

 I get a lot of these using pmap:
 b20b4000    8188 rwx-- 00000000b20b4000 000:00000   [ anon ]
 in fact:
 pmap -d `pidof mythbackend` | grep 8188 | wc -l
 I believe these are stack allocations from each time a new thread is
 created, so it implies that maybe we're not joining/terminating threads
 properly (this is after about 3 days with mythbackend using 774MB of
 virtual memory)
 Is there a quick way to determine which thread a block of memory belongs
 to, and where that thread got created?
