That's not quite true: indeed in a GC'd language, there cannot be leaks
in the C sense of "objects still allocated while we don't even have
a reference to them any more".  But leaks in the sense of "objects still
kept around even know we will never ever use them again" can
still happen.


PS: BTW, since you use erlang-mode: could you get someone from the
    erlang-mode developers to contact me in order to include it in Emacs
    (I've tried several times but got no answer).
