[ASYNC-51] Core.async memory leak in Safari and Mobile Safari Created: 21/Jan/14 Updated: 15/Oct/14
Mobile Safari on iOS 7.0; Safari 6.1 on OSX Lion
Chaining together channels apparently leaks memory in Safari.
A statement such as
will leak memory when the channels are used. The longer the chain the more memory.

Yes, it affected advanced optimization. I haven't checked if this is still an issue.
