Just his post above alone gives me enough to know that this discussion is a
fruitless exercise

1.  He has yet to post his top numbers or any other benchmark of his "issue"
despite others here doing so
2.  He *believes* there is a problem because a process grows in memory from
10% to 40% over time with no evidence other than that to base his claim on

I guess I should consider all the processes on my PC to be leaking memory
because they all pretty much do that.  Just because he can't imagine why a
process would do that doesn't make it a bug.
