FYI, for anyone looking at this, I believe I've identified the problem. In
lib/talloc.c, in function talloc_vasprintf, the call to vsnprintf...
len = vsnprintf(NULL, 0, fmt, ap);
...is attempting to get the number of byte that *would have* been printed to
the target string. The current FreeBSD underlying implementation of
vsnprintf/vfprintf doesn't play nicely, leaving a 1k work buffer un-freed.
According to the cvs log for vsnprintf.c, the FreeBSD developers are aware
The fix for my purposes is to pass vsnprintf a real buffer and length, and
all seems fine.
