Some additional tools/utils to try would be

MemProof: (, well
worth a go.
FastMM: ( A *fantastic* drop in
memory manager, not sure if it works on linux as ive never tried it.
AQTime: ( if you have
any spare cash, this app is a godsend.

As a first call I would definitely try FastMM, you could be surprised what
shows up, MemProof is free and can be handy tracking down memory leaks,
AQTime is similar to MemProof but more functional, especially if profiling.
