Sharepoint memory leaks, anyone?

The SPDisposeCheck tool will help improve the quality of your SharePoint assemblies. It will inspect your SharePoint assemblies and check that you are correctly disposing of certain SharePoint objects (IDisposable objects which includes SPSite and SPWeb). The tool is based upon the guidance published in this MSDN article, Best Practices: Using Disposable Windows SharePoint Services Objects

This tool is not supported by Microsoft and is recommended to be used on Developer workstations and not on production SharePoint Server installations.
