           Summary: Many false leaks in release builds due to PtrAndFlags
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Web Template Framework
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ap at webkit.org

I'm getting false positive leaks from Safari with ToT WebKit release build
(with either FastMalloc or system allocator).

PtrAndFlags has a debug-only mechanism that makes it work with Mac OS X leaks
tool. This is insufficient, because we need leaks to work in release mode, too.
This is sometimes useful for WebKit development, but much more importantly,
every Mac application that uses WebKit will get false positives from leaks
