I have tried MemWatch ( freshmeat has it ) in the past. It works OK.
there is a catch. It is NOT thread safe. I never had time to actually
fool around and add a mutex around it. I might still have the files
here around on my PC, if you are interested.

Maybe one day, I'll try DMALLOC that has pthread support.

If anyone has a "debug malloc" system for RTOS'es in general,  I am
interested in 
hear about it.
