> memory leak

I just met hepi, he also is a Doctor Who fan and is tuned to Astra2 as I am.
He complained about the bad status of EEPG, restarting his server every
three days or so due to a memory leak within that plugin.
As this is a 'must have' if you are on Freesat, it might be closely
related, even if you feel it is not...

I personally do not care because I have the receiver off most of the time.

How would you analyze or debug a memory leak in a running environment:
- which thread/plugin is the root cause?
- which datastructure sees the growth?
- which allocs are not bracketed by a proper de-alloc?

Here is the output:
