as far as I can tell, it does not. If I recall, the class destructor should be
called when a class falls out of scope, so if your destructors are correct, it
should be automically handled...? I think destructors cascade, too. Pretty much
anything in C that would be malloc'd or freed would be handled by a class in
typical c++. 

Looking through a whole bunch of debugging and developing utilities, I found
nothing for c++ memory debugging :/
