It might not be *your* program that's having problems. :-(

I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to Windows, but leaving the  
Task Manager open so that you can see what resources different apps  
are using would probably be a good start. Then leave it all running  
and wait until there are problems. Don't you just love intermittent  
bugs?

P.S. A notorious example of memory leaks on OS X is Safari - if you  
leave your computer up for long periods of time Safari can easily hit  
more than a GB of RAM after being open for a few days, even after you  
close most of the tabs and windows...
