Last modified: 2017-11-14 16:07:00 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1309439 +++
Description of problem:
libtevent allocates memory during tevent_common_add_signal() but doesn't free it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. register a signal handler with libtevent
2. watch the memory usage of a program after startup
3. receive a bunch of signals
3. observe memory usage go up
this is best tested through sssd performing many allocations
This bug was open for almost two years and no customer cases were attached since.
The bug has also been fixed in RHEL-7.
Given the low interest and the fact that the bug is fixed in RHEL-7 and RHEL-6 being in Production Phase 3, I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX.
Please reopen this bugzilla if you are hit by this bug and would like to see it fixed in RHEL-6.
