And some stuff is expected if you don't
use "G_SLICE=always-malloc G_DEBUG=gc-friendly". Can you set those
environment
variables and try again?

Uhm, okay if you say so. More of that developer black magic ;) Stay tuned...

Heh, you can read http://live.gnome.org/Valgrind to get some background about
all this. The important thing is G_SLICE=always-malloc, since glib, by default,
handles memory allocations in a smart way that doesn't work well with valgrind.
This env var tells glib to just use malloc, and not the smart way.
