There are several that look like they could be related.  The savepv was 
the most promising one.  It had nothing to do with memory leaks, but can 
prevent reads of uninitialized data.

I am unable to reproduce your problem.  I have gone back to the earliest 
5.37.1 and used gcc 12, and nothing.  valgrind shows it is failing in 
initialization.  I have put together a group of patches some of which 
fix issues with initialization.

Attached is a patch of all of the things since 5.37.1, so it should 
apply cleanly to that source.
