this was indeed a xine-lib bug. See

oxine does not use freetype directly but through xine-lib only.

I'll file a bug at their bugtracker.

Thanks for the log file, but the data doesn't help to identify the problem.

I think it's not FreeType but oxine which has a bug -- does it call FT_Done_Library properly?

I think I've found a memory leak in freetype again. For infos please see the attached valgrind log file.

Cheers, Maximilian Schwerin
