Symptoms

When the HTTP explicit proxy generates error pages it may leak memory in some cases.

Impact

The TMM's available memory will slowly decrease over time.

Conditions

The HTTP explicit proxy is used, and an error occurs that triggers an error page to be generated.

Workaround

Using a smaller error page may make the memory leak less likely.

Fix Information

The HTTP Explicit proxy feature will no longer leak memory when error pages are generated.
