I did find one memory leak a couple of years ago. This was in the
callback to locate and parse a DTD; it only happened when parsing XML
files with a DTD reference at the top, and we fixed it. Have you
tried with the latest SVN code?

If you still see the problem, can you send us a script which shows
the leak (e.g. parse your XML document a few thousand times) and we
will look at it quickly? ... any bugs might bite us one day as well!
