Yes, these tests are useful, but normally only during the very final stages 
prior to release.  I even have a VALGRIND environment variable that turns on 
valgrind in the Director.   

One minor problem with valgrind is that it has a number of false reporting of 
problems ...

I am not very knowledgeable of ctest.  Is there some way to turn on valgrind 
testing automatically?
