Valgrind may work (http://developer.kde.org/~sewardj/). You have to use 
cmem and compile without debugging information (you can inlcude line 
information however), because it doesn't support all Pascal-specific 
stabs and crashes on them. It can also detect a lot more problems, like 
access to uninitialized memory locations etc. You may want to use the 
"sloppy malloc" option however, since other wise you'll get a lot of 
incorrect error reports are strcopy and friends.
