Sorry that I wasn't very clear.

Actually I was wrong, only one of the leaks I saw looked like it was
from DumpRenderTree. What made me think that was the fact that the leak
was the string "DumpRenderTree". Is there some other reason that would
show up? I admit I don't understand all this stuff very well yet.

I'll watch to see if there's a way to get a core dump when
DumpRenderTree crashes. It's moderately strange that the crash appears
to be random. In my experience that often means some variable isn't
getting initialized.
