Bug Description

While testing video playback with XBMC (using latest packages from TI PPA plus latest gst-ducati and gst-plugins-based from gitorious), it seems there's a huge mem leak happening while decoding the video, as after 15 mins xbmc.bin was already using more than half of the system memory.

This issue can also be reproduced by using gst-launch, even with videosink=fakesink, so it's probably a leak while decoding the video.

To test just get a video with more than 10mins, and play using gst-launch and playbin2. At the same time start top at another terminal, and you'll see gst-launch using more memory as the video goes on.
