Afternoon folks,

We have noticed that using the 6.2/6.3 collectors that the GC has a 
somewhat smaller heap with leak detection enabled (GC_find_leak=1). 
Using the GC_PRINT_STATS option, we see the full heap size after a full 
world garbage collect:

  Leak detection enabled: 266240 bytes
  Leak detection disabled: 356352 bytes.

Our target is Linux RH9, GC built shared, multithreaded, POSIX.  Anybody 
have any ideas why this might occur?
