That is fundamentally true; however, we have recently addressed some
genuine Valgrind warnings in the 1.8.x development branch.  Those fixes
will show up if/when we release a 1.8.7, but in the meantime you may
like to look at the 1.8.x branch in Git, to see if any of the warnings
fixed match the ones that you are seeing.
