RPGLE programs: Memory leaks

I've been putting into production some RPGLE code, which uses "%alloc" and "dealloc" to allocate memory. I know programmers shouldn't worry about resulting memory leaks but I'm worried about if it actually does happen.

So here's my question: If a programmer messes up and there actually is a memory leak, when will the memory be reclaimed? Does it happen when the program leaves memory of when the job finishes?

    Any allocated memory will automatically be deallocated when the program's activation group ends. -- Tom
