  It’s still hard to see what’s going on, because nothing is cleaned up.  How are you stopping the server?  CTRL-C?

  Can you set up a control socket, and use “radmin -e terminate” to stop the server?  That should cause it to exit cleanly.  Then, *only* leaked memory should show up on valgrind.

  If nothing shows up there, then the memory is being tracked, but not cleaned up on time.
