+ * leaks using a leak detector.
+ * To use with GCC/Clang address sanitizer you can set or add these options:
+ * CFLAGS="-fsanitize=address -fno-omit-frame-pointer"
+ * LDFLAGS="-fsanitize=address -lasan"
+ * Note that early GCC address sanitizer don't have a leak detector.
+ * To use Valgrind you can run the test with:
+ * valgrind --tool=memcheck --leak-check=full ./test-leaks
+ * For cleaner output you should suppress GLib checks with glib.supp file.
