Most of these are probably not accurate (although this looks like it
might be a tool with potential).  In order to get more accurate
information, you'll need to set the G_DEBUG and G_SLICE environment
variables as mentioned on the "Running Glib Applications" page:
http://library.gnome.org/devel/glib/stable/glib-running.html

Specifically:

G_DEBUG=gc-friendly
and
G_SLICE=always-malloc
