Re: Memory leak or stored info

well, there is definitely a leak popping up on my linux box, but only
under certain situations.  without --with-pam or --with-openssl, i
don't see a leak.  if i compile using --with-pam, i get a very small
leak.  if i compile using --with-openssl, i get a very noticable leak
(a few kb per connection).  these leaks happen when i just do a connect
and immidiately disconnect (passwords have to be used to trigger the
--with-pam leak).  part of me is wondering if the --with-pam leak is
really the pam libraries themselves and not conserver, but i'm
currently under the impression it's conserver until i can prove

so, i'm not sure what configuration you're using, but if you have
--with-openssl or --with-pam, i'm probably seeing what you're seeing.
if your situation is different, let me know.

i'm going to focus on looking at the memory leaks and see if i can't
track some of this down.  if anyone else happens to notice something,
let me know.
