Summary0008551: YEngine leaking memory from strings in event
DescriptionThere is a memory leak in YEngine with any events that have string arguments. Events such as listen, link_message, http_request, http_response, dataserver, etc.

The memory from the string arguments does not appear to be cleared when the event exits, and as a workaround you must manually clear the string.

Curiously, the memory appears to be getting cleared on a region restart, or when you relog in the case of scripted avatar attachments.
Steps To ReproduceThe script below exhibits the problem, and memory usage will increase by 22 bytes with each click.

default {
    touch_start(integer num) {
        llMessageLinked(LINK_THIS, 0, "MEMORY LEAK", NULL_KEY);
    link_message(integer link, integer num, string msg, key id) {

can confirm this is an issue .. Work around until fixed is clearing the variables after they are used, as stated in this mantis ..

default {
    touch_start(integer num) {
        llMessageLinked(LINK_THIS, 0, "MEMORY LEAK", NULL_KEY);
    link_message(integer link, integer num, string msg, key id) {
        msg=""; //clear the msg variable after use.

Not really a leak more of an accumulation on uncleared variable memory space.

...more of an accumulation on uncleared variable memory space.

Isn't that what a memory leak is?

EDIT: Regardless though, this can result in an OutOfHeapException

technically a leak occurs without user interaction or active functions .. I know a minor difference but this takes activity to accumulate.

Yes OutOfHeap is the end result ...
