What makes you think theres a memory leak?  As far as I can see, in pl11, the
free_obj() function in db.c (which is called from extract_obj() in handler.c)
checks if the descriptions are pointers to the prototype obj's description,
and if they're not it free's them... as it should be, else you'll be freeing
up the descriptions of all objs of that num... this should peacefully work
with what you've done and handle all the free'ing on its own...
