Boost has made Valgrind useless (15000 line of output). And I have not
been successful in getting suppression rules:

Indeed! I've been working on iPhones/iPads for too long.

Ok, thanks.

To retain info on the objects in question, do I need to compile with
g++ -v and save the intermediate (ii?) files?
