Description Tom Henderson 2018-03-30 10:31:31 EDT
I have encountered this doing some off-tree work; programs using nsc will not report a clean valgrind (and the NSC test programs also report this).

I'm just noting that this is an open issue for others to know about it; I am just working around the leak in my own environment.  Sam has previously written about some tools for finding leaks in NSC: see Appendix B of https://wand.net.nz/pubs/199/pdf/report-final.pdf.

I'm not planning to fix; am going to look towards DCE Linux usage going forward.  We'll still accept a patch on this if someone is inclined to fix it
