i may have figured this out... i (finally??) set the HEAPTRC environment 
variable to point to my desired log file and removed the "--debug-log=filename" 
from my lazarus command line... now i do get the log file, no popup and the 
contents of the log show 0 unfreed memory blocks...

FWIW: i tried this with startlazarus and always got an error when lazarus exited 
that it could not open the desired log file... when this happened, it said that 
it was writing all the output to stderr or stdout (i forget which and never get 
anything in the console screen used to start lazarus)... looking at the log 
file, after i discovered that it existed and contained something, i saw that it 
was related to startlazarus so apparently startlazarus was using the file and 
had it locked for its use only... so i've switched back to using lazarus.exe
