Summary0002490: Memory leaks in libwapcaplet
DescriptionI've built the Amiga frontend of NetSurf with clib's memory debugging mode. This logs memory allocations and will note when they haven't been freed.

See bug 2489 for more info.

For libwapcaplet, we have the following not freed:
src/libwapcaplet.c:58 (0002046:0000008 bytes)
src/libwapcaplet.c:66 (~16364 bytes)
Additional InformationRelevant part of the log:

[NetSurf] - 8 0x10814570 [allocated at src/libwapcaplet.c:58, freed at stdlib_malloc.c:399]
[NetSurf] - 16364 0x10814D7C [allocated at src/libwapcaplet.c:66, freed at stdlib_malloc.c:399]

This is still true in the current version.

This looks like the core wapcaplet context which is, indeed, never freed.

If the iterator at the end of NetSurf doesn't list any strings, then we've not leaked wapcaplet strings, just the core hash table. Short of adding a 'lwc_closedown()` type function there's no easy way to clear this.

I decided to make lwc_iterate_strings() free the global context if no strings were found. This should resolve this.

Thankyou for reporting this issue.
We believe this is fixed in the 3.10 release.
