Changes (by stuarta):

  * status:  assigned => closed
  * resolution:  => fixed


 The changes already made against this ticket fix the majority
 of the leak as triggered by the EIT scanner. The problems lie
 primarily within the RecordingProfile class which is being
 used both within the backend and the frontend.

 Fixing the leaks further would cause segfaults in the frontend
 due to double free's. To fix it properly requires a complete
 refactor of the RecordingProfile classes to separate out the
 UI components from the data components.

 As this lies outside of the EIT scanner, i'm closing this ticket.
 I'll open a separate one for what remains.
