Dunno didn't try it before I wrote it.  Possibly it needs some braces
around it.

Huh?  Your first post seemed to indicate that your problem was ch wasn't
set to NULL after being freed.  Now you're saying that it isn't being
freed at all?.  If ch is a valid pointer and free(ch) doesn't free it,
your libc is broken.

If what you mean is that free(ch); ch = NULL; is not giving you a NULL ch
afterwards, you've got some other code that's causing problems.  Try
setting a breakpoint after the ch = NULL; and stepping through the code
to see where it's changing.
