          Issue ID: 17377
           Summary: Empty D program is not valgrind clean
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: druntime
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: issues.dlang jmdavisProg.com

When this program

import std.stdio;

void main()
{
}

is run through

valgrind --leak-check=full

it shows that we're leaking memory:

There's a good chance that this really doesn't matter normally, but if not even
an empty program is valgrind clean, then it's likely to be problematic to
verify that we don't have memory problems when using allocators or integrating
with C/C++.

It would not surprise me if we need a way to run druntime that indicates that
we're running valgrind so that it does cleanup that it doesn't normally do
(e.g. force the GC to clean up everything on shutdown, which it normally
wouldn't), but I don't know. Either way, valgrind indicates that we're
currently leaking with an empty main.
