void func(void)
  char *foo = malloc(16);
  ... etc ...
  foo = NULL;

i.e.: missing free().

Yup, and I don't have Microsoft Visual C++.  GCC has an option like MSVC's
warning but it is too verbose to pick out the ones MSVC warns about.  I do
have access to MSVC on Wednesday evenings for 3 hours so I usually squash
quite a few every week.  If you want to help (another person already is
too), e-mail me (not the output from the compiler for
the _current_CVS_snapshot_ and I'll fix them faster. To help, I'll export
the entire CVS tree also instead of just patches.

And no, they won't be official (or even unofficial) "releases."  They'll be
just another dated chunk of code.
