I'm tracking a 4 block memory leak that occurs every few seconds. I'm 
running on a AppleTV so valgrind is out as it takes too much cpu when 
running. More on that later.

In my google travels I've found a nice perl script for light weight 
memory tracking. Grab the script from 
http://www.schleef.org/~ds/mem_usage, make it executable, the watch 
./mem_usage <pid> will display a simple memory usage.
