Hi Markus,

You mean the static list of mechs? Why do you want to free that? It should
only be initialized once in the lifetime of the library. At least that's
what it looks like from the information you posted.

In my experience with running valgrind on mechglue, I recall there are
things that are initialized once when first used and never freed. So
technically they are leaks and valgrind picks them up but the leaks
should never grow beyond a fixed size.


PS to kitten: This is another thing that would be more elegant with an
application context.
