Description of problem:
While using memprof and a program to check for memory leaks even simple programs
seem to have leaks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run memprof
2. start using it
3. if the program is a little large it may shoot the CPU up
its it to random at this point to know what the actual steps are, but often it
is on pressing the leaks button
Actual Results: sometimes it works sometimes it crashes.
please try the memprof shipped with Red Hat 8.0; it includes many
fixes and improvements.
