In my app. It's a client/server app. The "server" receives
the client's requests, send them to the database using api's
functions, and them replies to the "client". The memory leaking
is in the "server" side.

One of the "memory leaking" problems was solved when
I stopped to use the isc_expand_dpb() function ( thanks! ).
But I think that there are problems yet with some functions.
The "describe" process ( not the "prepare" that I mentioned
above, sorry ), when I need to allocate memory for the
osqlda->sqlvar->sqldata variable. It seems that the memory
allocated in this step is never recovered again.

So, this leads to my other questions in the first
message: how is the correct way to deallocate the memory of
the osqlda structure.

Any help will be welcome.

Best regards.
