function date_create_from_format leak memory when returns false.

Test script:


//	Coloca no diretorio do binario e dai todos as indirecoes funcionam
chdir( dirname ( __FILE__ ) );


function iplx_echo_memuse($msg){
	echo "$msg  php($m1) system($m2)\n";

function test_date_create_from_format($ts='20140530140000'){
	$date = date_create_from_format('d-m-Y H:i:s', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));
//	$date = date_create_from_format('Y-m-d H:i:s', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));
//	$date = date_create_from_format('YmdHis.u', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));
//	$date = date_create_from_format('YmdHis.s', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));
//	$date = date_create_from_format('d/m/y H:i:s', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));
	$date = date_create_from_format('YmdHis', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));
		$date->modify('+1 minute');
		$date = date_create_from_format('YmdHis', $ts, new DateTimeZone('UTC'));

function main_teste_memoria(){
	$ts = '20140530140000';
	$counting = 1;

	$oldLimit  = ini_get("memory_limit");
	echo "Current memory limit $oldLimit \n";
	ini_set("memory_limit", "1M");
	$oldLimit  = ini_get("memory_limit");
	gc_enable();	// enable memory management
	echo "Current memory limit $oldLimit \n";

		iplx_echo_memuse("Before test_date_create_from_format");
		iplx_echo_memuse("After  test_date_create_from_format");
		echo "Executions ($counting) \n";
