Description of problem:
I've been writing an experimental static analysis tool to detect bugs commonly
occurring within C Python extension modules:
I ran the latest version of the tool (in git master; post 0.9) on
sssd-1.6.2-5.fc16.src.rpm, and it reports various errors, 4 of which appear to
be genuine memory leaks.
You can see a list of errors here, triaged into categories (from most
significant to least significant):
Note that the 4 bugs reported in the top-most category ("Reference count too
low") appear to be false positives due to bugs in the tool.
I believe that the 3 errors reported within the second category ("Reference
leaks") *are* genuine memory leaks.
Within the third category ("Possible reference leaks"), I believe that the
first two errors are false positives, but the third appears to be a genuine
src/python/pysss.c:PySssLocalObject_new: ob_refcnt of '*self' is 1 too high
The fourth category ("Returning (PyObject*)NULL without setting an exception")
appear to all be false positives: the checker doesn't know that
PyErr_SetSssError(ret) sets an exception.
There may of course be other bugs in my checker tool.
Hope this is helpful; let me know if you need help reading the logs that the
tool generates - I know that it could use some improvement.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc-python-plugin post-0.9 git 073d390de53ef52136bd90e5ac06f1ef833d047d running
the checker manually in an *f16* chroot; automated build failed with
checking whether we are cross compiling... configure: error: in
configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
which seemed to be due to "-specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-ld" in
LDFLAGS ; could be due to using f16 chroot, rather than rawhide/f17.
