what Gem version is this?
does the problem exist with the latest and greatest Gem (0.92.2)? (if
not, i claim the beer :-))

thanks for sending an example patch; it's pretty generic, and i do not
see any memleak occuring here (using the alea.mpg example film).
however, the bug might be related to the number of blobs found and the
image format, neither of which i can reproduce;
could you put the clock.avi online somewhere so i can download it?
or: how does your patch behave with homer.avi?
