Description Havoc Pennington 2003-04-17 20:55:23 UTC
Attached test app makes memprof think memory is slowly leaked, but 
it doesn't look like it really is.

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-04-21 16:55:28 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-23 22:07:09 UTC
I've checked in a patch in the official glibc CVS archive.  The next RPM will
contain the fix.
