Original bug ID: 7915
Reporter: danielrichman
Status: new
Resolution: open
Priority: normal
Severity: minor
Platform: Unix
Version: 4.07.0
Category: otherlibs
Monitored by: @nojb @diml

Bug description

caml_ba_slice uses caml_ba_alloc and hence caml_ba_ops/caml_ba_finalize, even if the array you are slicing is mmapped and so it should be using caml_ba_mapped_ops/caml_ba_mapped_finalize.

When the slice is garbage collected, caml_ba_finalize either asserts-0, or does nothing (if assertions are not enabled), and in particular does not decrease the refcount on the proxy.

When the original array is garbage collected, the refcount is greater than 1, so it is not freed.

Steps to reproduce

Build and execute attached file with ocamlopt.
