This only just showed up, and I just recompiled world yesterday, so I
don't know if it's me or gcc.

I've got a function that passes back an array, that I've malloc'ed within
the function using:
double * returnArray = (double *)malloc((size_t)(3 * sizeof(double)));

The rest of the code looks sort of like:

double * returnArray = transform(initialArray);

... do some stuff ...


dmalloc from pkgsrc shows that I'm not freeing returnArray, ever. Do I
trust dmalloc?

Anyone have any ideas?
