No.  As long as you work with objects of class ex, then carefully 
keeping track of allocated objects and explicit calls to the proper 
ex::~ex() destructors should keep your code both leak-free and running, 
I suppose.

Clearly this is not the advertised way of using the library.  But, well, 
since you asked...

Oh, that's on purpose, because of its "internal" nature.  ;-)
