libpurple memory leak detection

Jul 12, 2012 at 8:37 AM
I am trying to catch memory leaks on application which use libpurple. http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/WhatIsLibpurple The application runs as a service for a few days and reaches 200MB private memory set while starting only with 16MB. And it keeps growing. With VLD I catched and fixed some leaks, but process keeps eating memory. Is it possible VLD does not track g_malloc, g_malloc0 and so one? Libpurple library uses them, because it uses GLIB libraries. Libpurple is statically linked to my application. Thanks.
