If ntpd exits cleanly, it should clean up most of the allocated memory.  I 
assume the idea is to help raise the signal/noise ratio when looking for 

There is an emalloc.c in libntp/

There are a few calls to malloc rather than emalloc in ntpd/  We should fix 
them, and poke around to make sure everybody is cooperating.

Is valgrind useful for this?

We should add a note in devel/ about how to find leaks.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
