I don't have any experience with interfaces but is quite possible that 
this is the case. The component i'm porting is the TVirtualTreeView that 
uses extensively interfaces/COM and this part of the code is a bit complex.

Anyway, calling manually _Release avoid the leak and i will stay with it 
for now (I hope did not break anything).
