What do the Winbind 2.2.2 memory leaks mean?

there were many discussions about the 2.2.2 Winbind memory
leaks on this list recently, but I still don't understand
the background.

I also observed recently what Mike Pain reported in "winbind
memory leaks and samba 2.2.3", that after a while of running
only a machine reboot does recover Winbind.

Why doesn't just restarting Winbind and/or Samba do the job?
What kind of memory is being leaked there?
