We can try to find the leak. Are you certain that the leak is within
lprng and not the filters used by lprng? Generally most problems like
this are caused by filters, but of course lprng is not immune to bugs!
Unfortunately tracking down memory leaks is non-trivial for most
programs. Do you have any debugging done on the program or it is a
blank slate at the moment?
