If my time permits I'm willing to look into these a little bit as I now
know a little bit about Coverity reports. And since I found that these
reports not only show potential memory leaks (which I don't worry about
much in short lived frontend apps) they sometimes point to bugs that may
cause real problems.

I just had a small look at one in pg_dump.c. However, it seems the line
numbers are completely different from my CVS snapshot. Are the Coverity
reports you listed up-to-date?
