Just for the record...

I am using a fakesink as video output and an alsasink for audio output. 
In combination with either decodebin or playbin this leaks (depending on 
the media file) up to about 2MB in VIRT and about 1MB in RES. I updated 
to the new 0.10.9 release and all plugin modules are the latest stable 

Hope that helps a little.
