url for that post?  there's no single way to track down a scalar leak.
if you give me an idea of whats going on, i might be able to offer a
suggestion for your particular case.  i have had success using purify,
which requires Perl to be compiled with -DPURIFY, similar with insure++
(another commercial tool).  i've never had success with any of the
opensource tools.
