           Summary: Each XMLHttpRequest leaks memory.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: john.kjellberg at power.alstom.com

I have tried this with WebKit-r43841(and earlier versions also in the past) and
I have loaded the attached file which makes a XMLHttpRequest request every
100ms. After a half an hour some MB of memory is missing. This continues until
the system is really low on memory and slows down and the the oom-killer kills
the app. I have checked memory usage in: /proc/<pid>/smaps and it shows
increase in "[heap]" memory.

This bug is really critical since it makes it impossible to create stable
kiosk-applications and such.

(This bug is sort of Bug#: 17534, however, I felt that that bug report was
really misleading)
