Hrm. Well, valgrind would be best, but that slows things down to almost
a grounding halt. (But in case you want to try that:
G_SLICE=always-malloc valgrind --leak-check=full -v --show-reachable-yes
--log-file=valgrind.log syslog-ng -F would be the command to run ;)

Other than that, a config could be useful, so I can try and reproduce
the problem (or at least identify possible areas where the leak might be
coming from, and go from there), and see if I can fix it.
