[gst-devel] rtspsrc - possible memory leak

Hello all,

I noticed that configurations like:

gstreamer 0.10.20 + base 0.10.20 + good 0.10.10 


gstreamer 0.10.19 + base 0.10.19 + good 0.10.7

constantly increase size of memory of gst process every ca 30 sec up to one 
minute in chunks of 4 or 8k when i play a configuration like this:

./gst-launch rtspsrc location=rtsp:// ! fakesink

so in 10 minutes the amount of real memory was increased from 4084k to 4148k

i do not use latest release like 0.10.23 because gst-ffmpeg once complains 
that it can't allocate context and once it runs okay. (looks like somethings 
references uninitialized memory).

Any clue ?
