No. Well, it will round up all allocations to a multiple of X bytes  
(X depends on whether you're on a 32 or 64 bit platform), but the  
same happens when freeing. If you free with a wrong size, you get a  
run time error 204.

You don't have to do anything but compile all your program's units  
and the program itself with the -gv switch.
