valgrind reports a small memory leak when 'use utf8;' is used in perl 5.20.0, the latest patch release candidate for perl 5.20 (5.20.2-RC1), and the latest development release (5.21.8). The leak is greater when using all optional features (-E). The attached file,, can be used to test different versions of perl. I used something similar to on blead at the end of last week and no leak was reported.
