> This bugs affects fuse-dfs severely. In my test, about 1GB memory were exhausted and
the fuse-dfs mount directory was disconnected after writing 14000 files. This bug is related
to the memory leak problem of this issue: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-420. 
> The bug can be fixed very easily. In function hdfsFreeFileInfo() in file hdfs.c (under
c++/libhdfs/) change code block:
>     //Free the mName
>     int i;
>     for (i=0; i < numEntries; ++i) {
>         if (hdfsFileInfo[i].mName) {
>             free(hdfsFileInfo[i].mName);
>         }
>     }
> into:
>     // free mName, mOwner and mGroup
>     int i;
>     for (i=0; i < numEntries; ++i) {
>         if (hdfsFileInfo[i].mName) {
>             free(hdfsFileInfo[i].mName);
>         }
>         if (hdfsFileInfo[i].mOwner){
>             free(hdfsFileInfo[i].mOwner);
>         }
>         if (hdfsFileInfo[i].mGroup){
>             free(hdfsFileInfo[i].mGroup);
>         }
>     }
> I am new to Jira and haven't figured out a way to generate .patch file yet. Could anyone
help me do that so that others can commit the changes into the code base. Thanks!
