FS#7745 - Simulator leaks memory

Running the Rockbox H300 simulator under Windows reveals that its memory usage (as shown in Task Manager) increases forever during playback. After half an album, my rockboxui.exe is using 22MB!

As amiconn pointed out, the allocation stops at the expected 32MB limit.

OK, the problem might well be SDL.
- With the Cygwin-supplied SDL.DLL (no version info, dated 5th July 2007), memory usage starts at 2MB and increases.
- With the SDL.DLL 1.2.12 run-time from, memory usage remains roughly constant at 38MB (!)

The DLL from is, if I’m not mistaken, compiled using mingw32 (at least I managed to build a bit-for-bit identical DLL using mingw32 on Linux). The DLL I provide with my prebuilt simulators show similar usage (ie. constant at around 38MB). So it’s probably something to do with the cygwin SDL dll?
