Submitted: 2007-10-03 21:38 UTC Modified: 2007-11-21 10:00 UTC
From: brendoncrawford at gmail dot com Assigned:
Status: Not a bug Package: Sockets related

Description:
------------
Each call to socket_recv (or socket_read) leaks small amount of memory despite efforts to free up variables.

Reproduce code:
---------------
As far as I can tell, this is always reproduceable.

Please see:
http://pastebin.com/f342f6b99

Expected result:
----------------
Memory usage to decline back to original state before client connect.

Actual result:
--------------
If you simply connect and disconnect, you will see no problem. However, if you send data you will see memory usage slowly increasing.

Also reproduceable in FreeBSD 6.2

The same happens without any sockets, just reusing some variable. It's how the Zend MM works, not a real leak.
