           Summary: cleanup the malloc / free strategy
           Product: GtkRadiant
           Version: 1.2
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: editor
        AssignedTo: ttimo@idsoftware.com
        ReportedBy: ttimo@idsoftware.com

now that we have solved the problem of malloc / free against modules
(see http://www.qeradiant.com/faq/fom-serve/cache/179.html)
some code is still using g_malloc and g_free, which causes memory errors

g_malloc g_free MUST be restricted to glib / Gtk+ stuff, and avoided as much as 
possible otherwise

TODO: grep for g_malloc / g_free in the GtkRadiant/ tree and in the plugins 
tree, and replace by regular malloc / free

Ex: the VFS functions are still using g_malloc to allocate the buffers
this is milestoned for 1.3, too dangerous to do on 1.2 for now
