Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2008-04-14 06:09:51 PDT
FastMalloc uses pthreads support for thread-specific storage to make sure that destructors for data get called. However, pthreads-win32 only calls those from pthread_exit (or when the thread's main function returns, but only for threads created with pthread_create).

Since ThreadingWin.cpp uses native Win32 functions, I believe that this data just leaks when a thread finishes.

Patch forthcoming.

+#include <process.h>
 #include "MainThread.h"
 #include <windows.h>
 #include <wtf/HashMap.h>
 #include <wtf/MathExtras.h>

I think process.h should be moved below MainThread.h

+unsigned __stdcall wtfThreadEntryPoint(void* param)

I think this should be declared static.
