Re: [eclipse-pmc] Fw: Urgent: Critical Bug for RC4a

+1 for reverting the attempted fix for for bug 354538 [1] for RC4a.

I have only read the bugzilla comments and not looked at the source, but
- Bug 354538 causes only a 44 byte leak on every WorkbenchWindow open/close (which happens rarely in my experience)
- Bug 354538 is known since 2011
- Earlier attempts fixing the issue have also caused regressions and have been reverted.

This fix isn't bulletproof yet, and the regression is severe.

Subject:        Urgent: Critical Bug for RC4a

Dear PMC Colleagues

A critical issue (see bug 518036) was found, which causes duplication of menu entries when dynamic menu contributions are used. This regression got introduced with M6 to fix an old (4.1 / 2011) bug regarding leaks. While leaks are bad, menu duplication is a real show stopper. I therefore propose to fix this for RC4a together with the EMF update. The fix is to revert the leak fix. The revert can be done without conflicts.

I would like to have an answer today, so, that we can build RC4a asap.
