Welcome! Please see the About page for a little more info on how this works.
Chaining together channels apparently leaks memory in Safari.
A statement such as
(def test [input-chan]
(map< identity (map< identity (map< identity input-chan))))
will leak memory when the channels are used. The longer the chain the more memory.
I have created an example repository and an example page.
The repo and the example code is here:
The demonstration page is here:
This link will leak
This link will not
The leak is pretty darn severe.

I have just confirmed this is also a problem in Safari Version 7.0.1 (9537.73.11) on Mavericks.
I updated the example page.
This link wont leak:
This link will leak:
There is navigation to try the different implementations and optimization modes.
To be clear map<-chain, custom-map, map<, and map> all exhibit the leak in :none and simple optimization modes.

To make sure this ticket has all the necessary information - if I remember correctly even advanced optimization is affected? Am I correct Bruce?
Yes, it affected advanced optimization. I haven't checked if this is still an issue.
