Just my opinion, of course, but this would require WAY more work than
implementing my suggestion. I am also not sure how valgrind does with
heaps, where the entire memory does belong to the application, but a
given memory location is accessed via a pointer that was supposed to be
used on another section.
I know that commercial Win32 tools (such as BoundsChecker, by NuMega) do
that using profie compiling - i.e. - they do exactly what I suggested in
the previous mail.
As usual, the best approach would probably be doing both.
