memory leak with Ice::IllegalIndirectionException

I have a simple program,which try to capture the images from camera,and send them with Ice.
I use VLD to detect the memory leak,it gives me these information:

Visual Leak Detector detected 11 memory leaks.

my slice file is :
module transfer {

	class Target {
		int id;
		string ip;
	};
	
	sequence<Target> Des;
	
	sequence<byte> Frame;
	
	
	
	interface Service {
		void transfer(Des targets,int len,Frame f);
	};
};

The code where I send the frame is:
void CCapSvrDlg::CamFrameData(double dblSampleTime, BYTE * pBuffer, long lBufferSize)
{
	try {
		//located
		Target* tt=new Target;
		tt->id=1;
		tt->ip="127.0.0.1";
		TargetPtr t(tt);
		vector<TargetPtr> d;
		d.push_back(t);
		//prepare net buffer
		BufferForNet b;
		b.index=index;
		b.length=lBufferSize;
		//increase frame index
		index++;
		//copy xvid frame
		vector<byte> vb(sizeof(b)+lBufferSize);
		memcpy(&vb[0],&b,sizeof(b));
		memcpy(&vb[0]+sizeof(b),pBuffer,lBufferSize);
		//transfer
		adaptor->transfer(d,sizeof(b)+lBufferSize,vb);
		Sleep(10);
	}catch (const Ice::Exception& ex) { 
		ostringstream ostr;
		ostr << ex;
		string s = ostr.str();
		AfxMessageBox(CString(s.c_str()), MB_OK|MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
	}catch (const char* msg) { 
		AfxMessageBox(CString(msg), MB_OK|MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
	}
}
How are these problems going?

    I don't see a problem in the code that would cause the leaks. However, I would recommend some changes:

    Change:
    Target* tt=new Target;
    tt->id=1;
    tt->ip="127.0.0.1";
    TargetPtr t(tt);
    

    to:
    TargetPtr t=new Target;
    t->id=1;
    t->ip="127.0.0.1";
    

    Later you do:
    BufferForNet b;
    b.index=index;
    b.length=lBufferSize;
    // ...
    vector<byte> vb(sizeof(b)+lBufferSize);
    memcpy(&vb[0],&b,sizeof(b));
    

    Copying a raw struct is not a good idea. You are completely dependent upon the compiler struct layout, and the endianess of the host system. It would be far better to make BufferForNet use a slice struct instead, and change transfer to:
    void transfer(Des targets, BufferForNet bfn, Frame f);
    

    Also note that the len is not necessary since sequences contain their length.

    I highly doubt that these leaks are real. For example, Time::microSeconds and IllegalIndirectionException do not leak memory (in fact, IllegalIndirectionException does not appear to be used at all anymore).

    Thanks, I have tried the mfc sample in Ice distribution, VLD aslo reports some memory leaks, may be it's wrong.
