Subject: [Devel] patch to fix memory leak with .pcf.gz files
Problem encountered with "fc-cache -f" using more than 100MB of memory
when scanning /usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi + /usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi
ft-test-leak.c shows the problem (needs a .pcf.gz font) when setting
> FreeType.Debug: FreeType: 44376 bytes of memory leaked in 4 blocks
Simple fix included (i'm no zlib nor freetype guru, but it seems the
right thing to do :)

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-28 07:05:22 EST
I haven't verified this bug nor tested the patch.  I just spotted it on
the mailing list and thought I should bugzilla it so we can test for the
problem and fix our package if it is applicable.
Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2003-02-28 10:00:07 EST
I've already verified the leak, verified the fix, and checked
a patch into package CVS :-)
