Funny coincidence - I just stumbled upon this code a couple of days ago and noticed it's leaky. This patch should fix the leak, and also gets rid of an unnecessary "if".

Not sure if this is a regression. If it is it might be a blocker.
Comment on attachment 343736 [details] [diff] [review] patch awesome, thanks! So to reproduce this, you just have to have a multiple selection and click in the first part of the selection, right? Can we write a mochitest for that that leaks without this fix? I guess what we really want is for SelectionDetails to not be such an error-prone mess...
(In reply to comment #3) > So to reproduce this, you just have to have a multiple selection and click in > the first part of the selection, right? Not exactly - you need more than one selection range (either of the same type or of different types) to overlap the clicked point (in practice, this probably occurs when you click in a selection that is also marked as misspelled or highlighted by "Highlight all"). I'll try to make a mochitest with two overlapping normal selection ranges.
This leaks one SelectionDetails object without the fix.

That's great, thanks!
Uri left a message on the tinderbox waterfall at 16:32 that he'd pushed a fix for the test bustage (on linux, mochitest is orange with focus errors after starting test_word_movement.html; on win32, redness from hanging test_character_movement.html). That doesn't appear in the pushlog. #developers suggested disabling the new test for this bug, to try to isolate if it leaves mochitest in a bad state for subsequent tests, or if there is a problem with the code change. That's http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/fba837242af0

Gah, helps if you disable the test properly http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/6e9a29a235ce
You could also disable the test like this: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/c4c46a5f9681/accessible/tests/mochitest/Makefile.in#l66 if you want.

That doesn't appear in the pushlog. Sorry. My push failed and I didn't notice. I now pushed the fix to the test and re-enabled it. I'll follow the tree.
Seems to be working now.
