Hello There
I am just trying to do a simple log in my (gst plugin) that work with
another library, to trace resource leaks in the library that is being
used by the plugin.
I get a proper name in the finalize but I get (null) in the initialize.
When can I expect the element name to be 
initialized ?
Code snippet looks as follows:
gst_myelement_init(GstMyElement *filter, GstMyElementClass* gclass)
    gchar* elementname = gst_element_get_name(GST_ELEMENT(filter));
    g_message("Initialized %s", elementname);
gst_myelement_finalize(GObject* object)
   GstMyElement *filter = GST_MYELEMENT(object);
   gchar* elementname = gst_element_get_name(GST_ELEMENT(filter));
    g_message("Finalized %s", elementname);
Thanks for your time
