#9345: mythbackend appears to leak memory

 * resolution:   => Won't Fix


 The first four loss records above are duplicates of those fixed by #6734
 (in 2e1e2ae2 ), where that fix was reverted to fix #9104 (in 9bfcd4e0 and
 backported to 0.24-fixes in 2ca5fd80 ).  It seems that there's a small
 leak when the RecordingProfile settings widget is used (by the recorder)
 without a ConfigurationGroup (as is used in the settings pages), since the
 ConfigurationGroup does the cleanup.  So, without rewriting the old,
 legacy, Qt-based, not-mythui settings UI, we can't fix the leak (if we fix
 the leak when RecordingProfile is used without ConfigurationGroup, the
 settings UI will segfault when ConfigurationGroup tries to clean up its
 children).  Since the old settings code is going to be replaced with
 either a mythui-based version or an HTTP-based version or both, this will
 eventually get fixed as part of that rewrite, and in the meantime is small
 enough that it makes more sense to devote any effort toward the settings

 And I don't see any obvious issues with the code specified in the last 2
 loss records, so I'm closing this as wontfix.
