Thank you! I do appreciate the work you put into this and want to keep
using the ports collection because it is so easy! I will keep a copy of my
convert.conf file so I can make the fix permanent.

I did not know whether there was a new "release" to fix the memory leak bug.

Thanks again.

Yes, but I need a new release to do an update...

That's a bug. :-( I didn't realize it was a user editable config file.
I'll have to move to the correct installation method where a .sample
file is installed and convert.conf is only install if it does not exist.
Be sure to save a copy before your next upgrade since the fix won't
fully take effect until the one after that.
