Recently, I've been investigating where and how WebKitWebFrame instance created
by FrameLoaderClient::createFrame() method gets freed. Someone on irc, where I
looked for help, has asked me to report my findings here, on bugzilla. So, here
we go.
I used RefDbg tool to trace GObjects creation/refs/derefs/finalization and
according to it, the only WebKitWebFrame instance that gets freed is the main
frame. Other frames, created via webkit_web_frame_init_with_web_view are never
Here what I did:
- Download and compile RefDbg from http://refdbg.sourceforge.net/
- Compile debug version of WebKit GTK
- Start GtkLauncher under RefDbg with
http://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_frame_cols as page to
- Wait till page fully loads and then close GtkLauncher.
- Examine RefDbg log for leaks
