Ticket #5535 (closed defect: fixed)
Memory leak when using 3D acceleration
|Reported by:||MMMartin||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.0.12||Keywords:||memory leak|
I found a memory leak in VBox 3.0.12 (it is present in 3.1 beta2 as well) with 3D acceleration enabled. It appears when trying to run MS Visual Studio 2010 beta and in my case it causes the VirtualBox.exe process consuming more than 400MB RAM in about a minute leading to a crash of the process and thus the VM.
To reproduce the problem:
Vista 32bit host, XP SP3 32bit guest, VB 3.0.12
install GA in safe mode
install MS Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate beta
enable 3D acceleration
run MS VS 2010, wait for the main window to appear, watch memory usage of the VirtualBox.exe process
Note: This is the issue I have already described here and here.
Log file is attached.
