The leak does occur in RHEL4, it's just not as bad.
Should be fixed in rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1
New version of rhnlib is available as public beta on the Enterprise 4 channels
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
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.
