That's a good theory.  I will definitely check it out.
I appreciate you looking into this Tom.

The traceback says that the leak is in libresolv, not libpq.  I'm not
sure it's really a leak at all --- I'd expect libresolv to do some
internal caching, and this looks like it could be data that's just being
held onto for possible reuse.  But in any case you want to file this
report with somebody else.
