Summary: HUGE memory leak in beta6 - tabs on left bug?

Initial Comment:
I have 3 accounts signed on - AIM, Yahoo!, and GTalk.  Generally only AIM is 
used.

Tabs are displayed on the left of the chat window.  My friend who is also 
seeing this leak also has left tabs and mostly uses AIM, although not for chat 
rooms.

My first tab is an AIM chat room that is on my buddy list with an alias.

If i alt tab to the window, Private Bytes as displayed by Process Explorer goes 
up 24KB.

Every time i type a keystroke, including backspace, memory under Private Bytes 
goes up 12 - 24KB.

Gaim 2b6 regularly gets to 500megs private/virtual before quitting 
it/crashing/killing it.

I JUST tried changing tabs to Top instead of Left (which I hate, you get 
drastically fewer tabs that way) and restarting gaim, and memory doesn't seem 
to be growing like before.

Closed the window, switched to tabs on Left, opened chat back up.  Memory 
started growing again at every keystroke.  Went up to 30 megs from 24 or 26.  
Closed the window, switched to Top tabs.  Opened chat, memory stopped 
increasing.  Noticed memory had dropped down to 26.

There hasn't been a GTK+ release that includes this fix.

If you'd like you can replace your libwimp.dll with this one that includes
the fix:

Since it would appear that this bug has been marked resolved on bugzilla,
would it be possible to get an updated version of GTK+ with it in it?

I am not sure any of the commenst below makes sens.
I am experiencing the same issue.
Tabs on left, with sevral IRC and IM accounts (it really does not matter
how many) Gaim slowly leaks memory and crashes afetr about one hours or
less.

I chose the wrong canned response... I meant to choose the "GTK+ Bug" on,
but chose the gadu-gadu one instead.

I think that comment got misplaced, if you need to put it on a different
bug...

This is going to be related to the changes that were made in 2.10.7 for
tabs somewhere other than on top in the MS-Windows (GTK-WIMP) GTK+ theme.

the Gadu-Gadu maintainer has left the project, and none of the
rest of us have any significant ability to use a protocol where
almost everyone is speaking polish. Please provide a patch for this.
