Patch to fix problem

Memory leak in qtdeclarative. Apparently fixed upstream in 5.6. Following reference from Fedora:

I have successfully applied the attached patch to 5.5.1-r1.

how serious is the memory leak?
Comment 2 Paul Jewell 2016-04-03 13:49:35 UTC
I was having problems with the responsiveness of Plasma, but I think that was related to the activities of the indexing daemon. The memory on my machine was being consumed, but I didn't go to the trouble of finding out the rate of loss. Once I came across the bug report in Fedora, I created the attached patch and updated my local installation of qtdeclarative.

Since installing the patch, and restricting the file indexing, I am happily using plasma-*-5.5.5 without any responsiveness or memory resource issues.

5.6.0 is in tree.
