Description

I've just been looking at various logs from the leak and bloat tests. Both of Thunderbird's current leak & bloat machines don't seem to be running the second part (trace-malloc) correctly.

The first part (which is done via XPCOM_MEM_LEAK_LOG) seems to be working correctly.

For the second part, the obvious errors are:

Warning: unrecognized command line flag --trace-malloc
Warning: unrecognized command line flag --shutdown-leaks

Alongside this, I noticed that there are not as many webshell/domwindow creations as in the first part of the test. So I guess we're not doing the full test there. My guess is the numbers are currently too low.

I'll do a windows build and investigate this.

These aren't an issue. I've looked into the code and it appears the trace-malloc code can strip these out of the processing route on mac & unix, but not windows.

I did this and both runs worked fine. gozer is going to watch a build on one of the boxes.
