Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 782150
RPM Python Bindings are leaking. This has caused a huge leak in setroubleshoot, when it hits an AVC storm.

setroubleshoot uses the rpm python bindings and is a long running service, Each time an AVC arrives it checks on the version of selinux policy, the kernel, and potentially the version of the source program and the target program to identify which version of the package was being used. If we are hit with a storm of AVC's we are seeing the memory skyrocket. We diagnosed the problem to rpm python bindings leaking. For now we are removing the bindings and going to executing rpm -qf PATH. Not an ideal solution, but we need this fix in RHEL5 and RHEL6. As well as Fedora.
