No.  Hunting memory leaks [in 'unmanaged' code] is tough work; it
usually involves a tool like valgrind and a full development stack.  Or
just code review at a maddeningly tedious level [this works best at 2am
in a dark world of complete silence, or accompanied by harsh death metal
rock at a volume of stun].

But I believe Mr. Barnes indicated the problem mentioned is fixed in
current releases.

Even in 'managed' code [Java, .NET, etc...] it involves sifting through
a lot of data; first you have to see the leak, and *then* you have to
figure out what code is to blame.  And asking yourself 'why didn't I
just become a bar tender?'
