I've written libyama, a malloc implementation that bundles leak
tracking by auditing allocations, array bound write detection,
detection of access to free'd memory, and realloc/free on invalid
pointers. It is intended as a replacement to malloc, and can either be
preloaded on the command line, or can be linked into a program. You
can download it in source from

Do tell you how you like it. It's (currently) written for Linux x86.
