It seems to me that after an hour ffmpeg is still using 23M (within a
virtual space of 76MB)

Your free memory is lower only because maybe some other process has cached
filesystem objects in memory.

To check for a memory leak of ffmpeg look at the memory usage of the
process itself, for instance:

time && ps aux | grep ffmpeg | grep -v grep

...executed periodically on a terminal will be more effective that using

If the memory does not grow with the simple stream copy you used for this
test try to perform the test using your filter chain, I think the problem
if present is in something inside your filters, and it will not trigger for
sure without encoding at all.
