That would be helpful.

I ran gawk on a ~ 20 megabyte file and it hit a steady size as shown by
top. I think that there aren't any real leaks here. Valgrind is generally
good about reporting real leaks as "definitely lost" and I have yet to
see that in this instance.

It may be that we could reduce gawk's memory usage for arrays, but
that's a different issue from a leak.
