Sorry to be contradictory. We're both saying pretty much the same thing, with slight variations. Your sample code is a good example, but I think it just shows that anonymous storage ( like \( "x" x 10_000 ) ) gets freed right away. I think it would not be freed if you had used a named scalar for that instead.

My sample code above does leak. You have to run it in a loop to see it, because it only leaks a little each time.
