When looking up the stderr of successfully completed WUs, I notice the statement "detected memory leaks" at serveral places in the text.

Example see here:

What does this mean? Something wrong with the RAM of my system? However, I guess if it was something serious, the WU would not finish with success, right?

Please ignore the message. It's completely harmless. Such messages are always present in Windows. They are not related to successful or not termination. If an error message is present, it's elsewhere in the output.
