Re: Memory leaks

I think it's worth pointing out that these normally harmless leaks would
become a problem if gtk was repeatedly loaded and unloaded with
dlopen()+dlclose(). Each dlopen() results in a fresh state, so Gtk would
allocate new instances of these global structures each time.

Not exactly a prominent use case though.

But my original example looked like this:-

Gtk::Main *app = new Gtk::Main (&argc, &argv);

delete app;

Change it to this and then look at memory use:

for (;;) {
        Gtk::Main *app = new Gtk::Main (&argc, &argv);
       delete app;

If memory usage grows then GTK leaks.  If it doesn't, there is no leak.
