Re: gtk+-1.2.10 has memory leak?

Hi Qn,

rev_path is declared static, so there is no leak, except for the length of the final string returned by gtk_widget_class_path(). This will not grow over time, so is unimportant.

In fact, your suggested change will crash: you need to NULL rev_path as well. But the change will make the function slower, and will not save any memory.

I've used memprof and valgrind on largish (250,000 lines of C) gtk+-1.2 programs and not seen any memory leaks, except for a few tiny static strings, like the one you've found here.
