[Openvas-devel] Memory leak in openvassd

Hello,

Valgrind reports a memory leak in the openvas scanner in 
src/ntp_11.c:819. arglist structures are allocated but not g_free'd. The 
missing arg_free_all() is commented out at the end of the function. 
Uncommenting it solves the problem and doesn't seem to break anything 
(scanner works fine and neither leak nor double free reported by 
valgrind). Nevertheless I am maybe missing something. Does anyone 
know/remember why was this line commented out? (It is like this since 
the initial SVN revision).

Regards.

Henri
