A good amount of memory leaks reported by mtr, but not causing tests to fail. See the attached text file for the valgrind output

How to repeat:
Run the test suite under valgrind

Suggested fix:
Fix the leaks

      Bug #56709: Memory leaks at running the 5.1 test suite
      Fixed a number of memory leaks discovered by valgrind.
     @ dbug/dbug.c
        This is actually an addendum to the fix for bug #52629:
        - there is no point in limiting the fix to just global
        variables, session ones are also affected.
        - zero all fields when allocating a new 'state' structure so
        that FreeState() does not deal with unitialized data later.
        - add a check for a NULL pointer in DBUGCloseFile()
     @ mysql-test/r/partition_error.result
        Added a test case for bug #56709.
     @ mysql-test/r/variables_debug.result
        Added a test case for bug #56709.
     @ mysql-test/t/partition_error.test
        Added a test case for bug #56709.
     @ mysql-test/t/variables_debug.test
        Added a test case for bug #56709.
     @ sql/item_timefunc.cc
        There is no point in declaring 'value' as a member of
        Item_extract and dynamically allocating memory for it in
        Item_extract::fix_length_and_dec(), since this string is only
        used as a temporary storage in Item_extract::val_int().
     @ sql/item_timefunc.h
        Removed 'value' from the Item_extract class definition.
     @ sql/sql_load.cc
        - we may need to deallocate 'buffer' even when 'error' is
          non-zero in some cases, since 'error' is public, and there is
          external code modifying it.
        - assign NULL to buffer when deallocating it so that we don't
          do it twice in the destructor
        - there is no point in changing 'error' in the destructor.
