cupsPrintFile leaking memory?

I seem to be having some memory problems with an application. I use cups to print documents almost every 6 seconds, for 24 hours, using the cupsPrintFile() function. After around 10 days the application crashes and I have a core dump of around 3GB.

When I look at the memory usage for the running process it leaks memory (around 4-12 kB per printjob).

The CUPS version on that machine (RedHat Enterprise Linux 4) is 1.1.22rc1.

Can someone confirm or deny the existance of a possible leak in this version of CUPS?
