Unless you provide enough info for someone else to duplicate the
problem, it's going to be hard to say if it's been fixed or not.

I see only one memory-leak patch in the CVS logs, and it's for plpgsql:

2003-03-02 15:45  tgl

	* src/pl/plpgsql/src/pl_exec.c (REL7_3_STABLE): Repair memory leak
	introduced by recent change to make SPI return a tupdesc even with
	zero tuples returned: some plpgsql routines assumed they didn't
	need to do SPI_freetuptable() after retrieving no tuples.

This is post-7.3.2 ...
