> It is possible to add macros to the code to help valgrind know which areas are being used by a custom allocator.  (See VALGRIND_MALLOCLIKE_BLOCK and VALGRIND_FREELIKE_BLOCK, for example.)  I'm not sure if they're useful in this situation, but they're worth taking a look at.

I see. That would discover errors such as something overwriting
structures allocated by the allocator but that were not handled to the
application, right?

Is there any reason why that's not included in the webkit allocator? I
mean apart from lack of time/interest, of course.
