  The GnlSource you add to a composition will not be freed after they've
been played (else you wouldn't be able to seek back). Although that
shouldn't result in a big leak.

  You might want to run your C program under Valgrind to find what
exactly is leaking. You will find some good information about how to
debug gst-based applications here :
