Ah sorry. A missed the little detail about the "static" keyword there. :/

I don't really see the reason for that code to fix anything either. But I have
tested with and without it multiple times. Without the change to
"ResourceHandleSoup.cpp" it leaks, with it it doesn't.

BTW I'm testing leak with "cat /proc/<pid>/smaps" and then diff the output. The
heap is building quite fast.
