pad probes leak refs to their data
Last modified: 2008-01-13 17:59:54 UTC
Pad probes leak references to their data. When they are created, the data is ref'ed, but they are not unrefed correctly when disconnect.
There are two possibles approaches.
1. Implement a method to pass a closure to the gst core and go like pygobject..
2. just use the regular pygobject function and do the counter stuff inside the bindings.
I picked option 2 because its a lot more simple..

In the test case.. I left a superfluous print statement
shouldn't this be pushed in before the next release?
yes, confirming as blocker

Re-implement wrapping of gst_pad_add_*probe in order to avoid leaks of
user-data associated with the probes.
