[PATCH - libtiff] Leak in GDALDefaultOverviews::HaveMaskFile ?

Reported by: Even Rouault Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1.0
Component: GDAL_Raster Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


When running Valgrind on (mask_2 and mask_3 tests can be disabled), I get the following leak reported :

The leak is caused by something in mask_5. (GDAL built with internal libtiff)

Summary: Leak in GDALDefaultOverviews::HaveMaskFile ?[PATCH - libtiff] Leak in GDALDefaultOverviews::HaveMaskFile ?

I've identified the leak as being the compression state structure not freed by TIFFFreeDirectory( hTIFF ) at line #102 of frmts/gtiff/tif_overview.c. The call to TIFFSetField( hTIFF, TIFFTAG_COMPRESSION, nCompressFlag ) at line #117 allocates again the compression state structure.

The fix I propose is the following patch to libtiff :

Index: frmts/gtiff/libtiff/tif_dir.c

        TIFFDirectory *td = &tif->tif_dir;
        int            i;

+        (*tif->tif_cleanup)(tif);
        _TIFFmemset(td->td_fieldsset, 0, FIELD_SETLONGS);

By looking at libtiff internal calls to TIFFFreeDirectory, I've observed that for almost all occurences a call to (*tif->tif_cleanup)(tif) is done a few lines before or after calling TIFFreeDirectory. So I imagine it would be maybe justified to remove all those calls and do the cleanup of the compression state in TIFFFreeDirectory.

Even, is there a reason to keep this ticket open?

comment:3 by Even Rouault, 9 years ago

I think the issue is still present. It is really a libtiff bug, but I'm a bit hesitant to apply the fix without studying all possible impacts.

Milestone: 2.1.0
Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Instead of touching libtiff, I found the following fix/hack

trunk r32732 "GTiff: GTIFFWriteDirectory(): avoid memory leak of codec related memory (#2055)"
