Summary

Serious Handle Leak on Find

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11v3

Operating system version

Server 2003

Description of the issue

When executing a "Find", FileMaker Pro 11.0v3 exhibits a serious handle leak.  (Along with leaking User and GDI objects.)

Steps to reproduce the problem

Set up task manager to monitor Handles, User Objects, and GDI Objects.  Open FileMaker and note the number of Handles, User Objects, and GDI Objects.  Execute a "Find" on the database.  (We are using a custom layout.)

Expected result

Handles, User Objects, and GDI Objects should return to the values prior to the Find.

Actual result

Handles, User Objects and GDI Objects do NOT return to their prior values.  All values increase, especially Handles.  After running for a long time, FileMaker Pro becomes unstable, requiring a restart of the program at minimum, and normally a system restart to restore normal behavior.
