Hi all,

I am getting two messages out of valgrind about still-reachable memory  
in libev v3.9, are these cause for concern?

==27872== 800 bytes in 2 blocks are still reachable in loss record 1  
of 3
==27872==    at 0x4A05809: malloc (vg_replace_malloc.c:149)
==27872==    by 0x4A05883: realloc (vg_replace_malloc.c:306)
==27872==    by 0x3A6CA04BF6: loop_init (ev.c:571)
