Description of problem:
While using memprof and a program to check for memory leaks even simple programs
seem to have leaks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run memprof
2. start using it
3. if the program is a little large it may shoot the CPU up

its it to random at this point to know what the actual steps are, but often it
is on pressing the leaks button

Actual Results:  sometimes it works sometimes it crashes.
