Hi guys,


I am confused as to why this reports an eight byte memory leak?


#include <stdlib.h>
#include <crtdbg.h>
class Test
 Test() {}
 ~Test() {}
std::vector<Test> vectorTest;           // This line causes a leak
int main()
 #ifdef _DEBUG
 return 0;


Detected memory leaks!

Dumping objects ->

{154} normal block at 0x00810E98, 8 bytes long.

Data: < > E0 F2 09 00 00 00 00 00

Object dump complete.


Removing the std::vector line stops the leak.


Is there a 'special' way to clean up vectors that I am unaware of?


Thanks in advance :)
