Repeatedly connecting and disconnecting to WLAN seems to produce an out-of-memory condition.


If you repeatedly try to establish and disconnect a WLAN connection, the socket server returns error -4 (KErrNoMemory) if there is any attempt to create a further connection through the socket server.

This condition can be created by
(1) establishing a connection (RSocketServ::Connect(), RConnection::Open(),
RConnection::Start()) and then
(2) closing that connection (RConnection::Close(), RSocketServ::Close())

repeatedly in a loop.

After the problematic condition has been achieved, trying to establish a connection using the Web application also results in error -4.

The condition appears after approximately one hour of continuously creating and recreating the connection (approximately 450 times through the loop).


No solution available for Nokia E65.

This problem can no longer be reproduced on Nokia N95 8GB sw version 30.0.018.
