Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-264) camera.getPicture() CRASH when repeatedly called on iOS

camera.getPicture() CRASH when repeatedly called on iOS

                 Key: CB-264
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS
    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
         Environment: PG 1.4.1 on iOS
Crash on iPhone4S, iPad2 and iPod Touch
            Reporter: Phil Haeusler
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah

We are experiencing an intermittent crash when calling camera.getPicture() on multiple devices.
 The crash can occur either as the pickerController is popped in from the bottom, or after
you tap the Use button to accept the picture.  The app requires the taking and review of pictures
in a fairly fast manner.  We've found the crash can occur anytime after we've capture only
1 or 2 photos.  Sometimes we go for quite a while without crashing.

We see that the images captured are stored in tmp/photo_nnn.jpg, but we do not believe we've
reached any storage limits here.  

We are taking the image and displaying it in a <img> - so possibly there is an issue
with UIWebView retaining references to previously loaded images, and exhausting it's memory.
 But not really sure if that could be an issue.

We've created a small app that we can crash by repeated taking and viewing images.  There
doesn't seem to be anything special about it.
