I have not. I thought of doing so, but I didn't, for two reasons:
1. It's already taking up *very* close to 100% CPU without Valgrind, so
running under Valgrind I guess it would be so slow that I wouldn't even
be able to get useful results. I'm also a bit worried about how much
buffer memory would accumulate during that time when it cannot consume
all data in time.
2. I'd probably have to let it grind for a very long to get enough data
to be visible through all the time spent on startup code.
#2 is really the greatest problem. Do you happen to know if there's any
way to turn off callgrind's data collection until Gaim has started up
