Are you implying that though the state of the pipeline is set to PAUSED, the 
filesrc will continue providing data to its peer. Is this the default behaviour 
of the plugin?  Because if it is, then when a pipeline is in PAUSED state then 
an application would still be doing quite a lot of processing and also hogging 
the memory resources.
