Hi everyone,

thanks for everyone's help and persistence!
We've been successful in finding a memory leak (hopefully /the/ memory leak). The main credit goes to Philipp for taking the Valgrind hints and then digging through the pretty awful part of the code and then fixing it:

New Revision: 19054

fixed(?) a memory leak: lost headers of stream because of wrong ref counter in associated refbuf objects. I HATE refbuf.

This was a major step towards release, I'll try to roll a beta4/RC1 ASAP. Feel free to test the fix on trunk meanwhile (we also need to confirm we didn't regress in metadata handling).
