I have tested the udeb from that location by rebuilding the installer with 
as only change that udeb, and I can confirm that the memory leaks are 
(almost?) completely gone. I have done a full installation and not 
noticed any regressions or problems.

If there still is a memory leak due to progress bars, it must be very 
small and could probably be ignored for Etch, but I'll let Attilio decide 
on that.

Loïc: How invasive is this patch? How would you judge the risk of 
regressions? Do you feel comfortable defending it for the RMs?

Thanks again,
