Description ric 2009-08-05 05:36:52 UTC
Please describe the problem:
when there is bad sequence rtp, there is memory leak of one gstbuffer.

Steps to reproduce:
1. under streaming media data environment, large bitrate (>2Mbps) 
2. lost rtp or resent lost rtp
3. there is bad sequence rtp in function: rtp_source_process_rtp

Actual results:
memory leak, process crash

Expected results:

Does this happen every time?
no, sometimes. when there is bad sequence rtp

Other information:
I have fixed this.
Just tell others.
add this to rtp_source_process_rtp function:
    GST_WARNING ("unacceptable seqnum received");
    static int bytes = 0 ;
    bytes += sizeof(*buffer) ;
    bytes += GST_BUFFER_SIZE(buffer);
    fprintf(stderr, "--ric rtp mleak[%d] kB\n", bytes/1024);
    return GST_FLOW_OK;
