thank you for your help !
The missing call of the function pj_deallocate_grids() 
was the reason for the memory leaks.

Best regards

Are you calling pj_free() on all definitions created with pj_init_plus()?
Are you calling pj_deallocate_grids() before program termination?

I'm not familiar with BETA2007.gsb, nor your coordinate systems.  Generally
it does not make sense to specify datum=WGS84 with an ellipse other than WGS84.

Perhaps you could specify what values you pass in, what values you expect,
what values you get, what your coordinate system definitions are,and why you
think they are appropriate (ie. references to the coordinate systems you are
trying to represent).
