Description Stefan Becker 2009-05-01 10:09:59 EDT
Description of problem:

During memory leak hunting for the pidgin-sipe plugin I discovered 2 memory leaks in the libpurple MIME processing code. At least for that plugin these code paths are used a lot.

The URL points to the upstream bug report which contains a patch for the issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:

This probably affects all pidgin versions in Fedora & RHEL. Please consider to apply the patch also for those releases.
Comment 1 Stefan Becker 2009-05-01 15:22:53 EDT
The patch has already been integrated into the 2.5.6 branch:


So depending on the release date this bug might just be fixed with the next version jump.
