Yes, it leaks memory for unidentified data streams. See 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5971 for reference. I haven't checked why 
ffmpeg doesn't leaks.

See http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/19279 for a better fix or send the 
output of

dvbsnoop -if $FILE -s ts -N 2 -tssubdecode $PMT_PID

the PMT pid is mentioned in the PAT use
dvbsnoop -if $FILE -s ts -N 2 -tssubdecode 0 to display the PAT
