contrary to your diagnosis, the documentation says that use of the -file option does not cause this behaviour.

Hm. Here are my findings using the -file option:

[18:25:56.31] C:\test>dir test.png 26/05/2012 11:30 7,133 test.png [18:26:17.25] C:\test>986015.pl start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 29 +,328 K end start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 34 +,652 K end start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 38 +,348 K end start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 38 +,180 K end start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 39 +,324 K end start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 42 +,816 K end start perl.exe 6476 Console 1 45 +,948 K end

    I didn't mean to challenge your finding; rather, I meant to imply that I could maybe look for a way of coaxing my code into exhibiting the behaviour posted in the bug report in order to eliminate the leak.

    I any case, thanks for taking the time for confirming this.

      It is quite possible that I am using a down-level tk/tk::photo relative to the guy who reported the bug.

      I only posted my findings to warn you that you should check your installation before assuming the fix.
