Thanks nicolas, you are quite right, I was missing an unref. The GST_LEAKS_TRACER_STACK_TRACE switch probably won't help much as the application is running on a cerbero built windows :-(

In your code that sets the bus handler, did you forgot to unref the GstBus ? Looks like a GstBus is leaked for every pipeline. Be aware that you can set GST_LEAKS_TRACER_STACK_TRACE=1 to get backtrace of where in your code that GstBus was allocated.
