twisted.protocols.smtp.SMTPClient has debug set to True by default, storing everything sent in memory

Having SMTPClient.debug=True is a recipe for memory leaks. If we can't set it to False on base class for backwards compat reasons, we should at least disable it on the high-level APIs that don't expose that info anyway, I think.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to invalid

This only records the last 10 lines sent. A line in SMTP is required to be around 80 bytes maximum. SMTPClient has plenty of problems, but this isn't one afaict.
