I got the same problem as bug .  Also, with php-4.0.4pl1 i have no problems, and with php-4.0.5 and php-4.0.6 there is a memory leak:

[jpeeters@wodka php-4.0.6]$ mtrace libs/

Memory not freed:
   Address     Size     Caller
0000000000        0  at
[jpeeters@wodka php-4.0.6]$ mtrace ../php-4.0.4pl1/libs/
- 0000000000 Free 7052 was never alloc'd
No memory leaks.
[jpeeters@wodka php-4.0.6]$

The configure line i used for all the versions is ./configure --with-apxs --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache/conf --disable-debug --enable-track-vars --enable-magic-quotes --enable-calendar --with-ftp --enable-ftp --with-gd --enable-versioning --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/ --with-gdbm --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql/ --with-tiff-dir=/usr/ --with-dom --with-expat --with-sablot --with-zlib-dir=/usr/ --with-png-dir=/usr/ --with-freetype-dir=/usr/ --with-rrdtool --with-pgsql=/usr/local/postgres

The leak occurs also with the latest cvs version.  If you need more information, feel free to contact me.

Sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking
support questions. Your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Your are not using mtrace correctly, this utility is used to analyzed datadumps made by mtrace() function if used in the source. This cli binary simply analyzes those files, running it on a compiled file is utterly useless.
