psql doesn't leak memory. The increment was the result of new history entry. src/common/exec.c does the following thing, ./common/exec.c:586: putenv(strdup(env_path)); ./common/exec.c:597: putenv(strdup(env_path)); valgrind complains that the memory block allocated there is definitely lost but it seems to be called once in lifetime of a process. regards, -- Kyotaro Horiguchi NTT Open Source Software Center -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
