Memory leak in audio pipeline

DC
Hi,

I have important memory leaks when building and deallocating audio transcoding pipelines in my application: more than 200kB per pipeline after creating and destroying 50 pipelines (please find attached below the pipeline diagram). In the long run, all RAM is used and even swap memory is requested because of the application's appetite.

I deallocate each pipeline as expected:

    if (gst_element_set_state(s->pipeline, GST_STATE_NULL) == GST_STATE_CHANGE_FAILURE)
    {
        LOG(LOG_INFO, "[eng%05u] Unable to set the pipeline to the NULL state", s->id);
    }
    gst_object_unref (s->pipeline); /* should free all elements and bins inside */
    g_source_remove (s->bus_id);


When running valgrind with mem-check for a single pipeline, I obtain as "definitely lost":

Which looks linked to the decoder/encoder elements (though only ~40kB). I tried to deference them directly before deferencing the pipeline (although they should have been dereferenced when dereferencing the pipeline):

        gst_object_unref(bin_src->decoder);
        gst_object_unref(bin_sink->encoder);

                                                                 
Mem-check now looks much better...

...but memory leaks are still huge (~180kb) when measured with top.

Running valgrind with massif, several minutes after the last dereferenced pipeline, the detailed snapshot shows lots of allocations related to elements in the pipelines, although pipelines have already been freed long ago (see file attached), examples:

Even encoder/decoder-related, which have been explicitly dereferenced.

What is missing when deallocating the pipeline?

Thanks for your help.
