Proposed patch

GstGLSinkBin adds a reference to the sink element in set_property() but never releases it in dispose or finalize methods.

The proposed patch does not add that reference and relies in the indirect reference added by gst_bin_add() instead (just like its already doing with upload convert and balance elements)

    GstGLSinkBin: fixed sink property leak
    No need to keep an extra reference to sink since an indirect one is added by gst_bin_add()
