7.64. gnome-settings-daemon

Updated gnome-settings-daemon packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The gnome-settings-daemon packages contain a daemon to share settings from GNOME to other applications. It also handles global key bindings, as well as a number of desktop-wide settings.

Bug Fix

Due to a memory leak in the "housekeeping" plug-in, gnome-settings-daemon did not correctly release certain memory segments that were not needed anymore. Consequently, the daemon could possibly exhaust all available memory, in which case the system encountered performance issues. With this update, the "housekeeping" plug-in has been fixed to properly free unused memory. As a result, the above-mentioned scenario is prevented.
Users of gnome-settings-daemon are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
