           Summary: multipart/x-mixed-replace handler leaks
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: matt at re-entry.ca

Responses that are of Content-type:multipart/x-mixed-replace contain many
multipart sections, each of which logically replaces the preceding section.

I am finding that as the response continues, Webkit does indeed replace the
content of the page with the values, but Webkit's memory requirements grow
along with the response lifetime.  I would expect it not to grow.

My evidence:

1. Activity tab shows the content of the response URL to grow apace the content
2. Task Manager/Activity Monitor show the memory usage growing as well.
3. Drosera shows the entire content of the response stream rather than the
current value, as expected. 

For a comparison, Firefox Does not leak with the same content stream.
