On what OS?

I've been seeing similar issues on Linux, but using heap profilers / leak
checkers don't turn up any results. At least in the Linux case, it
appears to be general heap fragmentation caused by continual mmap/munmap
of malloc'd memory blocks.

Does using something like tcmalloc instead of glibc help with this?
