RE: Memory leak with curl 7.15.3

My application is such that it sets up one handle using the
curl_easy_init call and continues to post messages using that handle. I
have not yet used curl_easy_cleanup()(since my application requirement
is to have one session, which polls constantly) and neither have I used
the recent version of curl.

Regarding memory growth, the growth is continuous.

Consider the curl-library mailing list for libcurl usage. I'mn cc'ing my
reply to that list.

Did you try with the most recent libcurl version?

It continues to grow all the time?

Is the memory not freed again when you call curl_easy_cleanup() ?
