Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2008-09-02 14:31:02 EDT
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).
