I haven't isolated the leak. I noticed it just before I left for vaca when I tried to start GnuCash master on my 56MB primary book. I did a Valgrind run on it but that gave up before it got to loading the data because of guile's garbage collection. I started on a suppression file but didn't finish it in time to try again.

If you can get a suppression file set up for guile then Valgrind will probably see the leak on 2M.
