[webkit-gtk] [JSCore] Tracing down memory leaks

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with memory leaks in a webkit app I wrote, to be
more precise with native objects exposed via JSCore.

Here is a test case (a modified GtkLauncher main.c , new code wrapped in
"Test code" comments):

And a test page:

Somehow, the _js_dbus_call method is leaking memory with every call and
I cannot determine where – valgrinding GtkLauncher produces a lot of
results, but none directly related to this function.

So, how can I track this down?

(And would this actually help, or are there enough unrelated memory
leaks in WebKit?)

Best regards,
