I would try using trap_TrueMalloc and trap_TrueFree, best methods that I know of. And can be used from all of the modules.

trap_TrueMalloc example:

g_sess is clientSession * and trueMalloc wants the first arg to be a void **, second arg is the size you wish to alloc.

trap_TrueMalloc( (void **)&g_sess, g_maxclients.integer * sizeof( clientSession_t ) );

trap_TrueFree example:

argument is the pointer you are freeing from truemalloc and again wants **

trap_TrueFree( (void **)&g_sess );

you really do not need (void **) but gcc likes to be picky about those kinds of things.
