There is indeed a leak in the remote logging and bz 649952 was opened for it.

It is Technology Preview. Its not quite ready for prime time as it does not yet have a 
store and forward model so that events do not get lost. The transport is not encrypted 
because we do not enable the gssapi support. This is because the kerberos libraries 
are in /usr and audit is in /sbin. So, if you have a NFS based /usr, auditd is broken.

It should have never left "Tech Preview" status.
