Memory Leak with .NET 2.0 - any suggestions, or help?

I have encountered a memory leak in out application using .NET 2.0
while using our owner drawn controls. There are two instances I have
found when checking the memory using .NET Memory Profiler from SciTech,
both led to WeakReference leaks:

Graphics.DrawIc onUnstretched()
the call stack is as follows:
Icon.DrawUnstre tched(...);
WindowsGraphics .FromGraphics
WindowsGraphics .FromHdc();
DeviceContext.F romHdc()
DeviceContext.c tor()
DeviceContexts. AddDeviceContex t()
ClientUtils.Wea kRefCollection. Add()
ClientUtils.Wea kRefCollection. CreateWeakRefOb ject()
ClientUtils.Wea kRefCollection. WeakRefObject.. ctor
Create a SolidBrush or a Pen had led to following call stack:
SolidBrush.ctor (Color)
SystemColorTrac ker.Add()
The created icon and the brush/pen are in a using block and should have
been released. I can not say for sure that this was previously working
with the .NET 1.1 Version but I have not seen this leak before and I
have done a lot of memory testing. The owner drawn controls are used
for a toolbar which is redrawn quite frequently as usual so the leak is
really serial.

Is there any MVP around that knows about this problem? I have seen only
one report mensioning the SystemColorTrac ker bug but there was no
positiv reply to it.

If there is no fix for it how good are the chances that it will be
fixed soon, lets say in the next 4 month?

We encountered yesterday another odd behaviour with our application
which was running several hours on a XP machine and is maybe related to
it: The application stopped drawing the controls and made a red "X"
instead. Our log file showed that when the application was trying to
create an icon it created an BufferedGraphic sContext exception, the
german error text to it is "BufferedGraphi csContext kann nicht entfernt
werden, da momentan ein Puffervorgang läuft." The Taskmanager showed
that the app was using over 9000! GDI-Objects - normally there are only
about 500.

Hope that I have provided enough informations to find someone out
therer who can help

New Year - new hope ....

.... that someone reads this message and has an idea or solution to the
problem. As long as you are using build in controls this behaviour
might not happen but if you want to create a cool looking application
you are lost, aren't you?

Hello, I am working on cross platform code that is displaying a huge memory leak when compiled on 11.00 HPUX using the aCC -AA flag. It is not leaking on NT, LINUX, Solaris, or HPUX without the -AA flag. In another news group I came across some interesting (ok scarey) information regarding memory leaks in the STL list<...> container. I have compiled and executed the following code and verified that this does in fact leak on my system.

Hi, I have this following simple c++ program, it will produce memory leak ( see what I did below ). My observation also showed that: There will be a mem leak when all the 3 conditions are true: 1. CallControlData does not provide a operator= 2. INUserHandle's operator= returns a object instead of a reference 3. Use CC -g main_leak.C instead of CC main_leak.C to compile. You change any of the above condition, there will be NO mem leak.

I am having trouble identifying the source of a memory leak in a Windows Python program. The basic gist is as follows: 1. Generate a directed graph (approx. 1000 nodes). 2. Write the graph to a file. 3. Use the os.system command to invoke another program which processes the graph file (graphViz), and generates a gif image of the graph. 4. Use another os.system command to delete the intermediate file, which is no longer needed. 5. Append...

I am having a problem where a long-running function will cause a memory leak / balloon for reasons I cannot figure out. Essentially, I loop through a directory of pickled files, load them, and run some other functions on them. In every case, each function uses only local variables and I even made sure to use `del` on each variable at the end of the loop. However, as the loop progresses the amount of memory used steadily increases. I...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
