I'm not sure if you understand what valgrind does, nor do you
understand how large the mythtv codebase is.

You say that, but alot of variables go into a working system

Hardware: exact make, models, bios revisions, card details, card versions, etc.
OS: Distro, library versions, stock or distro patched versions
MythTv: plugins, compile time options, optimization flags (if on a
source distro).

Any of these could cause the problem, replicating a system isn't as
easy as you make out.

Fact is, if its causing you major pain to have it leaking memory then
you should shut down your system long enough to do some diagnosis work
on it. Otherwise, suck it up. I was in a similar situation last year
with a memory leak sucking 300-400mb on a daily basis, just had to sit
it out and hope for the best.
