Package: libgstreamer0.10-0
Version: 0.10.19-3
Severity: important
X-Debbugs-CC: roaraudio at lists.keep-cool.org

We use gstreamer to do the handling of audio formats for the
rpld/roaraudio playlistdemon/soundserver . It runs 24h and usually after
some h the process it killed because of out of memory. A friend of me
debugged it and found out that it leaks 5MB RAM per hour. Which is
pretty unacceptable in out use case.

Our system is a Fujitsu Siemens S300 800MHZ 128MB RAM.
