[Spread-users] Do you think there is memory leak?

When processes exit all allocated memory is freed by the operating system.
This is true for any Unix, Windows, or Mac OS. So you do not have to free
at exit. 

Actually, this makes me curious. Does anyone know of an OS where
heap memory is not released when a process exits?
