While writing a message from a mailto: link, the Boehm GC said the a string
was leaked allocated from:

PR_Malloc
nsMemoryImpl::Alloc(unsigned int)
nsMemory::Alloc(unsigned int)
nsCppSharedAllocator::allocate(unsigned int, void const *)
nsCRT::strndup(unsigned wchar_t const *, unsigned int)
nsCRT::strdup(unsigned wchar_t const *)
nsMsgComposeAndSend::SetStatusMessage(unsigned wchar_t const *)
nsMsgComposeAndSend::Init(nsIMsgIdentity *, nsMsgCompFields *, nsFileSpec *,
int, int, int, nsIMessage *, char const *, char const *, unsigned int,
nsMsgAttachmentData const *, nsMsgAttachedFile const *)
nsMsgComposeAndSend::CreateAndSendMessage(nsIEditorShell *, nsIMsgIdentity *,
nsIMsgCompFields *, int, int, int, nsIMessage *, char const *, char const *,
unsigned int, nsMsgAttachmentData const *, nsMsgAttachedFile const *, void *,
nsIMsgSendListener **, unsigned int)
nsMsgCompose::_SendMsg(int, nsIMsgIdentity *, int)
nsMsgCompose::SendMsg(int, nsIMsgIdentity *)
XPTC_InvokeByIndex

It looks like the problem is that nsMsgComposeAndSend::SetStatusMessage does an
unnecessary strdup and never frees the result.  AFAICT, that stdrup should just
be removed and you should use aMsgString directly.

Also, while I'm here, I'll point out that nsMsgStatusFeedback::ShowStatusString
is also inefficient:  the nsAutoString is unnecessary and could be removed (it's
never used).
Posted patch proposed fixSplinter Review
The above patch fixes the leak in nsMsgComposeAndSend::SetStatusMessage and
removes the unused nsAutoString in nsMsgStatusFeedback::ShowStatusString (as per
dbaron's comments).  Can someone look at this for an r/sr=?
Right thing to do. R=ducarroz. Please send an email to reviewers@mozilla.org and
mscott@netscape.com for a super review. Good job. Once you get the SR, I'll
check in the patch for you.
