[New-bugs-announce] [issue15900] Memory leak in PyUnicode_TranslateCharmap()

Christian Heimes report at bugs.python.org
Mon Sep 10 11:58:22 CEST 2012

New submission from Christian Heimes:

Objects/unicodeobject.c:PyUnicode_TranslateCharmap() leaks a reference to the variable unicode. PyUnicode_Translate() is also implemented around the helper function _PyUnicode_TranslateCharmap() but it properly decrefs the reference to the first argument.

PyUnicode_Translate() also has an obsolete onError goto label. The patch fixes the leak and simplifies PyUnicode_Translate().
