Hi Everyone/Bruno,

I'm testing on Fedora 29, x86_64. I'm catching an address sanitizer
finding in libiconvert-1.16. It was present in 1.15, but I did not
investigate it. I'm using CFLAGS+=-fsanitize=address and
CXXFLAGS+=-fsanitize=address (and LDFLAGS+=-fsanitize=address as

The other 150 or so tests preceding the finding are OK. I'm guessing
this is unexpected.

==495==ERROR: LeakSanitizer: detected memory leaks

Direct leak of 288 byte(s) in 2 object(s) allocated from:
    #0 0x7f75d3044c08 in __interceptor_malloc (/lib64/libasan.so.5+0xefc08)

SUMMARY: AddressSanitizer: 288 byte(s) leaked in 2 allocation(s).
gmake[1]: *** [Makefile:144: check] Error 1

I don't have better information for frame #2. I'm building with `-g2
-O2` so it may be some C runtime startup code.

The drag about a leak in a shared object is, C#, Java and Android will
load/unload a library as needed. The library is unloaded/evicted when
it is not needed The accumulated memory leak will grow over time until
the device/app is starved of memory. The situation gives the OpenJDK
folks a lot of problems on some platforms.
