I think you are right, it seems the Heap objects on the _heaplist
are not deleted when TimerList destructor is invoked.
The Heap objects are alocated only inside TimerList::find_heap() and
the _heaplist management/access is internal to TimerList only, so
the TimerList destructor should delete the leftover.

The fix for that will be trivial, but lets address it after the
pending two xorpsh related patches are out of the way.
