After stewing about this a bit more, I suspect you're never calling
amqp_maybe_release_buffers(), which is what releases memory allocated when
receiving frames from the broker.  You should do this after you have used
the data in the amqp_frame_t's you get from amqp_simple_wait_frame().

amqp_destroy_connection() should also release all memory associated with a
amqp_connection_state_t object

If the above is not helpful, could you post the minimum code required to
reproduce the memory leaks you're seeing.
