gnome-terminal memory leak
Last modified: 2010-10-23 00:08:30 EDT
Description of problem:
When opening several terminals (or several tabs) memory is not released once terminal is closed by parent gnome-terminal process
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 2 terminals or more
2. Open 2 terminals on second terminal open several tabs
Memory consumed and not released
Patches from this bug made it into later version of gnome
I need to see a specific leak report before doing anything. A verbal "memory is not released" is worth nothing as far as fixing the code is concerned. Show me a valgrind leak report. Ain't gonna fix something not broken. Definitely not for RHEL4 (or RHEL5 for that matter).
