Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2008-06-30 14:10:37 EDT
Valgrind found a small string leak in Evolution's composer, which is now fixed
upstream.  Some larger leaks appear to be coming from the GtkHtml engine or
perhaps even deeper (Pango or Fontconfig).  It appears to be triggered by calls
to pango_itemize().
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 21:29:17 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
