Valgrind usually reports a couple of leaks in the script parser.
These are rather minor though as their total volume is small and
they only occur once during initialization.

However, if you see any leak reported during Bro's main processing
then that's a significant bug; every leak in the main loop may drive
Bro to memory exhaustion eventually. In this case, could you please
mail us the valgrind logs?
