Well, there are other ways, but it often involves recompiling. That'd
probably have to be done anyway in order to track where exactly a leak
was coming from. Go ahead and post a bug. The worst that could happen
is you'll annoy some developer. Just be cordial about how you phrase
it, and describe exactly how you described the problem before.
