I've ran the tree1 binary (from doc/examples folder) together with valgrind and
discover the leaked bytes. After some investigation I discover that lzma
support include it. So if I configure the library without having lzma support
that the memory leak vanish.

What I know also because I've tested, is that in openSuse 12.3 the library
version of libxml2 is 2.9.0 and the memory leak does not occur.

So my wish, if it's possible, please, is to have a libxml2 library update in
openSuse 12.2 without having memory leaks. In our company for the moment we use
this version of OS and for the moment is not a priority to upgrade the system.

Thank you,

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a system openSuse 12.2 with libxml2 on board
2. Use the binary example "tree1" from "doc/examples" in valkyrie or valgrind
3. Then you will discover the memory leak
