have you tried using gnustep-gui's memory panel ?

If your application has a standard info panel (the one created by
gnustep-gui), clicking on the application icon will automatically bring up
the 'memory panel'.

Else, try using 

[NSApplication orderFrontSharedMemoryPanel: nil];

or add a menu item 'Memory Panel' with action
<menuItem title="Memory Panel" action="orderFrontSharedMemoryPanel:" />

that should bring up the memory panel, which is such a great tool for
tracking memory leaks ... it the leak is a leak of objects - if we are
leaking raw C memory, it won't help.

I apologize if you knew perfectly well about the Memory Panel already, had
already tried it, and it didn't help.  :-)
