One really useful tool with valgrind to look for memory leak is massif:
It is really easy to use, and can be used to detect and find a memory
leak if you can easily reproduce the problem. I've used it myself to
squash some memory leak in scipy/numpy (C extension mostly, but not
only). It is extremely useful to improve the performances of some code
too ( to detect if you create/recreate temporaries).
