I am working for a large software company and this is what we do for programs having memory leaks where we use components over which we do not have control :
a. Split the app into two - one containing components/code which has proven memory leaks, and the other will be a plain program calling this at frequent intervals. This will be the parent app.
b. The parent app will call the child app (with memory leaks) and for every n number of such calls (maybe 100 or so), the parent app closes the child app and restarts it once again. The moment the child app is closed, you regain the entire memory leaked.

We were recently developing a "Mail Converter" program for converting mails from 16bit to 32bit systems when we had the same problem - the 16bit system was "leaking memory" and the system would just hang after converting some 80 mails. We divided the app into two and it is now working perfectly. We close the child app and restart it after every 25 mails. The parent app's job is only to close and restart the child app. The child app does most of the work.
