[webkit-dev] Snow Leopard Leaks Bot out of Disk Space

Interesting.  Would you suggest that we add code to DumpRenderTree.mm
to remove MallocStackLogging from the environment before running the
tests?  (I am of course assuming that malloc code checks
MallocStackLogging at startup and such a change would not affect
logging in DRT itself.)

Thank again you for your help.

> The issue is that the AppleSpell process is inheriting the environment from the process that required it.  On the leaks bot this is DumpRenderTree with MallocStackLogging=YES set.  AppleSpell appears to be a long-running service that never exits on its own.  This causes its stack log file to grow without bound.  I've cleaned up the disk space it was using for now.
