Strange, I'm using libgcrypt from debian and don't see this.  Could you
try to debug it further to see if there is a genuine memory leak?

Hm, I realized I have a ~/.valgrind:


The libgcrypt.supp file in GnuTLS lists some known memory leaks in
libgcrypt.  However, your leaks doesn't look like any of them, but maybe
you could check that file to make sure.
