Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2008-09-02 14:31:44 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 RHEL.
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-03-26 13:27:50 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
