[gdome]Do I use gdome_di_freeDoc?

Hi All,

I am using gdome for generating an xml document.  I notice that
gdome_di_freeDoc has been depricated.  However, if I do not use this
function, I get more memory left still reachable when the program
finishes (as detected by Valgrind).  If I do use this function, I get a
load of errors but less memory still reachable.

I notice the examples still use gdome_di_freeDoc.  What is the correct
way to clear the memory used by gdome?

I include a test program I wrote, and some relavent bits of the
valgrind output.  More details are avilable at

Thanks for any help,

Hugh Morgan

System -

Red Hat Linux (version 20.x I think, but I could be wrong)
Valgrind 1.9.3
Compiler cc (sorry, I do not know what flavor)
libgdome 0.7.2

Test program -

int main(int argc, char **argv)
    GdomeDOMImplementation *domimpl = NULL;
    GdomeDocument *doc = NULL;
    GdomeNode *currentGraphic = NULL;
    GdomeNode *currentScene = NULL;
    GdomeNode *anotherNode = NULL;
    GdomeException exc;
    GdomeDOMString *nodeName = NULL;
    domimpl = gdome_di_mkref ();
    nodeName = gdome_str_mkref_dup("Root");
    doc = gdome_di_createDocument(domimpl, NULL, nodeName, NULL, &exc);
    currentScene = (GdomeNode *) gdome_doc_documentElement(doc, &exc);
    gdome_str_unref (nodeName);
    nodeName = gdome_str_mkref_dup("Child");
    currentGraphic = (GdomeNode *) gdome_doc_createElement(doc, nodeName, 
    anotherNode = gdome_n_appendChild (currentScene, currentGraphic, &exc);

    gdome_str_unref (nodeName);
    gdome_n_unref (anotherNode, &exc);
    gdome_n_unref (currentGraphic, &exc);
    gdome_n_unref (currentScene, &exc);
    gdome_di_freeDoc (domimpl, doc, &exc); /* I comment out this line */
    gdome_doc_unref (doc, &exc);
    gdome_di_unref (domimpl, &exc);

    return 0;
