So, the functions calls are visible?

Well, kpathsea is mostly not used by server processes, which run
hours, days, etc. Hence a small memory leak is not *that* important
(IMHO). If you're willing to identify them feel free to do so and
report them upstream. But I'd rather use the kpathsea from TL 2011,
not the outdated version in Debian.

Would you *______really* want to get on a non-stop flight?
