Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216649
Memory leak in credential caching.
Last modified: 2010-10-22 03:02:56 EDT
Description of problem:
This is a leak fixed upstream, on the ccache code. (lib/krb5/ccache/ccbase.c)
A customer has been hitted by it and would like this to be fixed on RHEL 4.x
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown from the original report.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. same as above.
I can just guess seeing how the ccache works.. we should get this leak everytime
we need to generate an object.
[Patch attached that matches upstream] 1.5.x
[Thread from JRA proposing a patch (different and not the same as upstream)]
Created attachment 141759 [details]
