           Summary: Memory leak in soup during loading & unloading an URL
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: Platform
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: dhanrd at gmail.com

   I compiled WebKit-r39433 with configuration option --with-target=x11
--with-http-backend=soup. I created a page to refresh at interval of 2000ms
with the following source code:

        function callme()

        function callme2() 
    <body onload="callme()">


I also observed the VmSize of GtkLauncher and found the following result.

Mon Dec 22 14:10:31 IST 2008
webkit: VmSize:    57348 kB

Mon Dec 22 14:37:31 IST 2008
webkit: VmSize:    58708 kB

I created a patch which shows no leaks for the same above test. I will post it

I have also discussed about these leaks in the following thread:
