This article describes how to debug memory corruption and or memory Invalid Read with help of Valgrind.
For more reference related to valgrind follow the link: Valgrind Tutorial
In order to run the netconfd-pro with valgrind run it as follows:
valgrind -v --leak-check=full --show-leak-kinds=all netconfd-pro …
After you started the server with valgrind, run the operation that is causing memory issue or perform some action that cause malfunction(s) and then shut down the server, simple Ctrl+C the process in the terminal where you started it.
The summary after the shut down may look as follows:

The dlopen problem is known issue and is not related to the netconfd-pro.
