Yeah, I have to say, I'm not especially worried about leaks on DLL
unload of msvcrt or winex11.drv, and will probably file a bug for
them (which we will leave open for a very long time), and
add a suppression for those leaks. The name of the suppression
will contain the bug number, so when people wonder what a
suppression is for, they can just go look at the bug report.
That will reduce the noise in the valgrind logs and let us
focus on things that matter more.
