how should a memleak affect performance? (it might crash pd/pdp once it 
has eaten all the memory, but while it uses RAM (not swap) i don't think 
there should be a degrade in performance)

and if there is a memleak in [pdp_ieee1394] (or [pix_video] to come to 
Gem grounds) please report this as a bug, so people can go and try and 
fix it.

it is one of the worst things in (open source) software development, 
when people keep complaining about bugs but don't report them to the 
developers (on order to be able to complain about the bug in the next 2 
years, since nobody else discovered it and/or reported it)

note: this rant is not especially directed at patrick, but at anybody.
