I did not use the word leak on purpose. I was purely thinking about the
intial parsing of projects which often takes up quite a lot of memory
which is not freed up until kdevelop is closed again. I'm well aware
that this is at least to a good part due to the way the duchain works,
but even if that only increases by a fourth or so that might already
make things quite worse for some people.
