 Excuse me, but ticket #2594 shows something totally different ... please,
 read carefully my comments for that ticket (the problem for that ticket is
 absolutely not cosmetic and this ticket is not a duplicate of that one ...
 for ticket #2594, if you don't fix the bug the code does not get built at
 all, because you receive an error from the compiler).[[BR]]
 For this ticket, I repeat, if you free the new data type, no leak is
 generated (please, look at the example code I sent). I don't think this is
 cosmetic: who does free the new data type if you never call MPI_Type_free
