HTTPSecureSocket Memory Leak

Has anyone found a workaround to fix the memory leak when using a HTTPSecureSocket?

I have tried setting .secure back to false, .close(), and setting the instance to nil but nothing seems to help.


Is there a bug report?

I think these are all related to my problem: 10732, 16276, 31707… One of them is marked as Fixed but I am hoping for something I can do on an older project…
