Description Tobias Mueller 2007-10-25 16:48:06 UTC
I noticed in
            src/libegg/egg-recent-view-bonobo.c (revision 629)

the following lines:

                case PROP_MENU_PATH:
                       g_value_set_string (value, g_strdup (view->path));

which is a memory leak since g_value_set_string dups the string itself.
