I think I've now accounted for all the apparent and real refleaks
revealed by the test suite (not with -uall, will try that soon). I've
checked my regrtest patches in. I've fixed a bunch of tests that
failed when repeated and I've filed bugs against those I couldn't
Hopefully we can keep on top of these things!
Also, remember to put the galaxy back when you've finished, or an
angry mob of astronomers will come round and kneecap you with a
small telescope for littering.
