User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0
Build ID: 20110812233755

Steps to reproduce:

cppcheck found some memory leak in gtscc.c.

Actual results:

These are the reported leaks:
[firefox-src/config/gtscc.c:764]: (error) Memory leak: source
[firefox-src/config/gtscc.c:764]: (error) Memory leak: object
[firefox-src/config/gtscc.c:1247]: (error) Memory leak: archive
[firefox-src/config/gtscc.c:2506]: (error) Memory leak: table
[firefox-src/config/gtscc.c:2506]: (error) Memory leak: dmap

Expected results:

You should release the objects before exit point. 

However, these bugs are not too importants, because the itself a program, and the memory will be released, when the program ends.

There aren't even rules to build that program.

That highlights a drawback of cppcheck: 
cppcheck does not use makefile (or other rule file), it is just scan all the source files, so it produces warning for unused files too. 

Maybe a cleanup would be useful. Probably there are some other unused files in the trunk.
