When using the CLI server, more than one access results in a huge amount of still reachable memory.

Test script:
touch t.php
valgrind --leak-check=full --show-reachable=yes php -S localhost:8080
[browser] /t.php
[browser] /t.php

Actual result:
55k lines of segments that are apparently still reachable

If use the RFC routing example, starting the server as "php -S localhost:8000 
routing.php" and browse for an existing JPG files, I see:

PHP Development Server is listening on localhost:8000 in 
/home/cjones/public_html ... Press Ctrl-C to quit.

If I repeat this with valgrind, I see the same output.  After ^C, I get 5.5K 
loss records reported by valgrind.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

This seems to be caused by the Valgrind's strange behavior.  Valgrind terminates 
the program immediately when the signal was sent during a interruptible system 
call.  It eventually fails to call necessary shutdown functions, and results in 
massive leaks.
