Comment 11 Mihai Ibanescu 2005-12-01 21:42:14 UTC
The leak does occur in RHEL4, it's just not as bad.

Should be fixed in rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1

Comment 12 Clifford Perry 2006-01-05 15:50:19 UTC
New version of rhnlib is available as public beta on the Enterprise 4 channels
on RHN. 

rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1.noarch   	 RHEL WS (v. 4 for x86) Beta
rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1.noarch 	RHEL ES (v. 4 for x86) Beta
rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1.noarch 	RHEL AS (v. 4 for x86) Beta
rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1.noarch   	 Red Hat Desktop (v. 4 for x86) Beta

Comment 13 Beth Nackashi 2006-01-17 15:04:36 UTC
Verified memory usage stays stable and test passes on i386, ia64, and x86_64
with rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1 and rhn-applet-2.1.22-4.

Ran rhn-applet-gui on i386, ia64, and x86_64 overnight and monitored memory
usage.  No issues.
