Backport the fix from current upstream version
Description of problem:
scim-bridge 0.4.5 in RHEL5 is leaking the DBUS message header
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install scim-bridge
2. Run gnome-terminal
3. Monitor scim-bridge process size while entering input in gnome-terminal
scim-bridge size increases continuously
scim-bridge size does not leak memory
This memory leak was fixed is a recent upstream version:
From the ChangeLog:
2007-07-01 17:48 ryo-dairiki
* common/scim-bridge-message.c, doc/Makefile.am: - Fix one memory
leak in the messaging bus.
I am attaching the backport of this fix to this ticket. This is fairly urgent issue because this may cause a delay to a large deployment that the customer is planning.
scim-bridge is actually owned by i18n engineering, Yu Shao's team, not by BaseOS. I'm adding Yu to the distribution list and forwarding the hotfix request.
Patch is ready. Wait for flags.
