           Summary: Add a "bisect-tests" tool to find tests that leak
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Tools / Tests
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: mitz at webkit.org
                CC: ddkilzer at webkit.org

When tracking down a memory leak seen on build bot, I try to narrow it down to
one layout test that causes the leak, by repeatedly invoking run-webkit-tests
--leaks with smaller sets of tests. However, there is no easy way to specify a
continuous range of tests, and there is no way to automate the process.

Building "range" support into run-webkit-tests and adding "bisect"
functionality either in run-webkit-tests or in a wrapper script will help speed
up the process.
