1.292. valgrind

Updated valgrind packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Valgrind is a tool to help users find memory management problems in the programs. Valgrind can detect a lot of problems that are otherwise very hard to find or diagnose.
The valgrind packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.6.0, which provides several bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#661245)
Bug Fixes
BZ#679906
When MySQL Server was run via valgrind, an error in valgrind prevented MySQL Server from writing to its log file and caused it to return a number of error messages. This bug has been fixed and MySQL Server now starts up normally when run via valgrind.
BZ#665289
When the snmpd tool was executed under valgrind on the 64-bit PowerPC architecture, it terminated unexpectedly. This bug has been fixed and the "valgrind /usr/sbin/snmpd" command now works as expected.
