Esteemed Contributor II

Arthur, the developers believe they have a fix for ER-2285 that more matches your call trace.

The 9.10 MR1 will include the change, but if you're willing to try it (*with patch code caveats)

please open a Tech Support ticket and ask for Michael Brado.  The engineer who says he has

the fix will provide the test build, if you let us know what platform of ZoneDirector you have.

Michael herewith the casenumber 295627 we request the support engineer to contact you.
Do you know if the memory leak ER-2252 has been resolved in this software version.

Engineering has resolved both ER issues, fixes are being rolled into the firmware builds,
and will be available in the next official Maintenance Releases (9.9.2, 9.10.1, 9.12.1) which
we expect to be posted this summer.  9.10.1 is currently scheduled for mid-July.

Yes Arthur, it looks like ER-2252 fix is integrated in, so will be in 9.10 MR1.
