Could you try starting ffmpeg_g with gdb, pressing CTRL+C as soon as the
leaking starts, do "b malloc" "b memalign" "b posix_memalign"
"b realloc" to break on mallocs/reallocs, then repeatedly "c 20" and "bt"
to get a sampling which code calls malloc/realloc most frequently?
Not sure how well that works, but it just might...
