That should work. Without more information it is hard
to say why you are leaking memory.

(When I say that it works, it works assuming that box
 is packed into a toplevel.

  box = gtk_hbox_new (FALSE, 0);
  label = gtk_label_new ("Hi");
  gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (box), label);
  gtk_widget_destroy (box);

 Leaks both the box and the label. 

 A widget is created with a reference count of 1; this
 reference count is taken over by a parent when you add
 it to a parent.)
