Wow, that's a *nice* catch! Thank you!
I'm happy to note that the problem was not large; the memory leak
could only happen if malloc() had failed, and the leaking function is
called a limited number of times, so it's not an unbounded leak.
Still, nice catch.

Sure. We just did a new release with your fix included, and I will
now go and post a new RFS here on debian-mentors.
