Just be aware of that I don't know if anyone ever has done this on Windows
before. I can't say I know any reason why it would work differently, but you
never know... :-)

So, do you get a file output that you can browse manually at least?

--- testfile start---
MEM url.c:241 malloc(67260) = 0x8104304
MEM url.c:250 malloc(256) = 0x81149d4
--- testfile end ---

$ < testfile
Leak detected: memory still allocated: 67516 bytes
At 8104304, there's 67260 bytes.
 allocated by url.c:241
At 81149d4, there's 256 bytes.
 allocated by url.c:250

If this isn't shown, can you post your memdebug dump here and let me try it
and see if I can figure out why memanalyze fails?
