Hi Leon,

  Valgrind is your friend for such a case (valgrind.org). You might
want to run it with gst-launch and a small mp3 file like this:
   valgrind gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=yourfile.mp3 ! yourmp3dec
! fakesink

  It will take some time, but at the end will report all leaked memory
and where it was allocated.
