Subject: dbh/ SV leak in pg_warn
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 660b
The pg_warn-function creates two 'RV wrappers' for accessing a database handle passed as argument in a way which causes the reference count of this handle to be incremented twice. Only the second of these is marked as mortal, causing the database handle (and likely, the first RV wrapper) to be leaked should the notification processing routine ever actually be invoked and the last 'user reference' to the dbh go away afterwards, while the perl interpreter which executed the corresponding code continues to run (eg, because of mod_perl). The attached file contains a patch fixing this by creating a single, mortal RV wrapper and using that in both places.
