Till now, this looks to be the most sensible solution. Not perfect, but better 
than what I had before. And if taken from the very start of the development 
and used regularly (and updated regularly) it should be enough to detect my 
leaks. The only tricky part is to not supres some real leak :-D

Anyway, I find this solution acceptable, even if not perfect. Thanx :-)
