  leak n. With qualifier, one of a class of resource-management bugs that
     occur when resources are not freed properly after operations on them are
     finished, so they effectively disappear (leak out). This leads to
     eventual exhaustion as new allocation requests come in. memory leak
     and fd leak have their own entries; one might also refer, to, say, a
     `window handle leak' in a window system.
