| This info is useless since there is no information about the leak.

Hi Martin, I think I made an mistake. Since I found this bug with 0.10.2-29.el6_5.4 so I make 
this patch according v0.10.2-maint branch. I knew it was already be fixed on upstream. I thought
there should be fixed on v0.10.2-maint. Now I know that. 
Thanks for your kind remind.
