Valgrind is a neat app, but it doesn't measure "bloat" as such, but rather 
reads from uninitialized and freed memory and stuff like that.

Unfortunately valgrind doesn't support threads, and every gnome 2 app I've 
started up kills valgrind very early as thet use a gs segment override for 
thread local storage, and valgrind doesn't support that.

It seems to work with pure gtk2 apps though.
