I'm not sure either of these are actually leaks. The EIT parsing
just took a lot of memory. But there is now rate limiting which
stops new EIT events from being added to our parsing list when
the number of EIT events cached for parsing exceeds 2000.

And the OSD cache probably just consumes a lot of memory because
is keeps decoded copies of your OSD at all resolutions you've
used so far. This also needs some cache size limits...
