Aha. This is the new Content-Type-auto-figuring-out feature. And that explains
why you saw the bug and we didn't; because WebKit was later fixed to not do
Content-Type sniffing for XML-RPC requests, so with current WebKit, the leak
wouldn't happen.

This is now fixed in libsoup master (abc8a146f4bc8936bb416de00fb4e57fca2a21bd).
