Yes, the bindtextdomain and textdomain functions allocate memory that does not get freed. But this occurs only once, at the start of the program, and is therefore not a problem. You can ignore these two findings.

I'm running a memory leak detector on my software, and it is detecting some memory leaks on the bindtextdomain and the textdomain functions.
I could not find anywhere if any kind of freeing of memory is needed for gettext.
The call stack for both are:

demon.exe!set_binding_values() + 0x12 bytes

demon.exe!libintl_textdomain() + 0xB bytes

Is it normal?

Thanks in advance!
