I have run valgrind on the sample Java program, which produces a lot of

On a quick look I would say that the Java program / VM doesn't at exit
get properly rid of the context(s) it creates. Additionally, I think
it's creating compatibility profile, because largest allocations are
from swrast context creation (AFAIK added for compat fallbacks).
At the time the program was stopped, it's memory consumption exceeded
1.5GB, only about 200MB of them accounted for by the JVM (which means
about 1.3GB were in native/mesa code).
I would recommend killing the process with a signal that Valgrind can
catch, but program doesn't (e.g. SIGCPU is something most programs don't
catch :-)). That way you see the actual run-time leaks instead of being
confused with issues program creates with its exit code. A lot of
programs don't properly free their resources at exit and people often
confuse Valgrind reports of these application's exit issues with

at least write a proper (non-Java) test case

FWIW, there's no need to be versed in Mesa to file a bug report. :)

Does it still happen with current Git master? There have been some fixes
in this area recently.
If it still happens, the output of running an affected application in
valgrind --leak-check=full (with debugging symbols available for at
least all Mesa binaries) would be useful.
