[vlc-devel] huge leak when attempting to play mosaic (libmpeg2.c/DecodeBlock)

Has anyone successfully set up a mosaic playout? I get a massive memory leak 
(as in 8% of memory gobbled up every second) when trying with 4 streams

Valgrind shows that the problem appears to originate from DecodeBlock in 
libmpeg2.c. I've noticed that p_pic is being lost and thus also p_pic->data 
but I'm unsure of the architecture of vlc (i.e. who is supposed to dealloc 
that memory since DecodeBlock never terminates.
