The sortedPixelSizes leaks. Instruments also report malloc 16 bytes leak, but I can't track the reason.
Test code: ------------------------- import javax.swing.*; import java.awt.*; public class Test { private static JFrame f; public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception { for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++) { Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage("NSImage://NSGenericApplication"); Thread.sleep(1000); } } } -------------------------

I think that adding autorelease like this [[[NSMutableArray alloc] init] autorelease] would help.
