Are you sure that all of these are bona fide leaks, and not just
stuff that we don't free because it's pointed to by a global
variable, etc.?  I don't recall ever seeing valgrind report that
many leaks in the past, and I noticed that at least one of your
changes (regarding t_trns in vfm.c) should only affect the
"global variable still references at exit" case.

I'll try to check tomorrow if you like.

By the way, I'm going to be very busy through Feb. 4 at least
(because that's the submission deadline for Usenix Security '05)
so I might become fairly nonresponsive between now and then.
Aim to please, shoot to kill.
