Also note that it's only leaking memory as long as the window is open. As soon 
as I close the chat window the pixmaps are freed again, I guess by the X 

And while valgrind supports a leakcheck inside a program's execution (instead 
of on exit) I've never tried to find out how to do that. I guess it has 
something to do with including memcheck.h, right?
