While using xmms the xmms plugin starts to drain all available ram memory (just like Windows Vista ;) ) ( 1gb ) incluing a 2 gb swap partition also CPU usage was pretty hi (100%)
in Xubuntu 6.10 ( with all the updates )
Can you give more detailed info on the libraries and versions you use? And how did you make sure that the memleak was caused by the plugin? I'm constantly running it but I see no leak.
There were a couple of places in the code where (because of insufficient documentation) we weren't sure whether to free or not certain variables (and as far as I remember freeing was the choice in such situations); but even in that case the variables in question are quite small in size; so they wouldn't be enough to fill a 1 GB memory in many days
The high CPU usage is also unusual; this is the first memleak/high CPU report that I got about the XMMS plugin.
