This is a bit off-topic, but valgrind performance is much better than
it used to be. Programs typically run around 5x slower --- less than
the performance difference between a netbook and a fast desktop

In any case, leak checking is usually an occasional task, so leaving
it to run overnight is fine.

I've not looked at Purify for years, but i think they offer similar
(but with knobs on) functionality under Windows. Perhaps a Purify
suppressions file would be the answer?
