[webkit-dev] known gtk+ leaks

I use a bit old revision of Gtk+ WebKit port (38403) and as I observe
my WebKit process, the RSS memory usage rapidly gets bigger and bigger
as I browse pages. Because of few modifications I made that work only
on older revisions, I can't use the new ones (the modifications are
rather small and I don't do any allocation). This can't be the cache
as I switch only between two linked pages.

This behavior indicates that there was a leak. I've googled and found
that there were leaks in libcurl and pango text rendering and want to
backport the leak fixes. Could please someone with this knowledge have
some spare time and help me find the patches so I can backport the
leak fixes.
