Wow, it does make sense but I never realized that this is the expected
behavior. So one really has to pull all messages from the pipeline?

The gst_pipeline_set_auto_flush_bus docs [1] do indeed mention something
about potential memory leaks:

> It is important that all messages on the bus are handled when the
> automatic flushing is disabled else memory leaks will be introduced.

Doesn't this contradict your statement Tim? i interpret this as that
messages are gracefully handled without any leakage when auto-flush-bus is
set to TRUE (the default value).
