Well, most of them aren't really relevant, though good to fix in the
spirit of getting cleaner code (though MPlayer is in more need in that
E.g. the memleaks are practically all at error conditions and thus
unlikely to matter to 99% of all users.
The exception may be demux_real.c, but anyone who had a closer look at
it could tell that it is full of bugs :-(.
