Checked to see if the gcleanup had made it into the main branches.  
Built glib 2.39.4 in /usr/local and installed it.  Made my binary use it 

   export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/lib

but it there was no (significant) difference in the valgrind output for 
helloworld.  Even
though there was a note in NEWS that

  * Due to early testing of the (soon to land) GCleanup framework, a very
    large number of memory errors have been found and fixed (mostly in
    the testcases, but some in glib itself).

If the gcleanup stuff is in there, it doesn't do anything without a code
