When playing .mkv files that contain an h264 video stream, this stream seems to
be leaked. The memory usage grew with about 560kB/s, which was similar to the
bitrate of the video itself.

This is using the gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg packages from debian-multimedia.org. I
have not tried to recompile gstreamer master using jhbuild, but I can do that
if it helps.

valgrind only reported a large quantity of still reachable memory, I'll attach
part of the output, not sure if it is usefull (it is missing libgstffmpeg.so
symbols right now).
