Description Jan Schmidt 2006-03-03 16:50:41 UTC
Our testsuite should somehow set the G_SLICE=always-malloc environment variable when valgrinding to ensure that memory allocations don't go through the slice allocator.

When the slice allocator is used, it's impossible to track down memory leaks, because they just appear somewhere in the middle of a grouped allocation.

This was added in GLib 2.9.5, btw. With older versions, setting it just won't have any effect.
