The status is that the const-string fixes with 0.9.6 made it possible
to fix these problems.  I can send the patch to Dave whenever, but
it'd probably be best to delay doing the release until we have a good
g-wrap release (which I think we're now close to, aren't we?)

Thse aren't huge memory leaks - we're only talking a few kilobytes at
most, and appear to be unrelated to the crash you were mailing me
