Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
According to Instruments->Leaks, there are no memory leaks in the application I'm developing. However, tracking memory usage myself (using task_info and task_basic_info::resident_size) shows that the memory footprint increases when certain operations are performed.
Is it correct to believe the resident_size value over instruments? The only thing I can think of that Instruments would miss is a circular reference situation, which isn't likely for my code. Also, the application will eventually begin to receive memory warnings which leads me to believe that the leak does exist.
Does the fact this leak doesn't show up in instruments mean it's happening in a framework or the OS itself? Is there anything else I can deduce based on this behavior?
