yp code in libc tricks memprof
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:20:34 EST
Attached test app makes memprof think memory is slowly leaked, but
it doesn't look like it really is.
Created attachment 91181 [details]
test app that creates confusion
When I run this program (not under MemProf) the program slowly gets
bigger as shown in top ... maybe 20/30k per second. I suspect
it's just leaking.
[ Havoc later commented that valgrind also shows a leak ]
You probably need a NIS setup to reproduce the problem.
I've checked in a patch in the official glibc CVS archive. The next RPM will
contain the fix.
