The interface between the event engine and the policy side of bro can
cause issues for valgrind (and many other memory testing programs).
There has been considerable effort to reduce issues with memory leaks
for some time now, and as far as I know there are no major issues.
If there are specific examples, feel free to forward them to the list as
we are always looking for improvements.
