Sorry that you've got that impression.  I meant that the _situation_ is
different, not the code.  And the situation is different because MC now
uses many functions from glib that allocate memory, and MAD is not aware
of that, despite some incomplete glib support in it.

I just trusted the search engine at too much.  It must be
broken.  Perhaps the mc* mailing lists are not indexed.  I should have
searched my mail.  Sorry for that.

Sorry that you feel disencouraged.  I really don't know what simple
question you mean.  If you mean the question whether your patches will be
applied, it's not a simple question.  It depends on whether they make
memory debugging in the current code possible or not.
