Just wondering if anyone had an opinion on this. I have a six or seven line fix for a memory leak (usually only a few bytes leak, and not more than what has already been allocated for argv) that I'm getting ready to commit to the feature branch. Is that a valid fix for the stable tree, or are we only fixing errors that cause user-perceivable problems there?

I'd say it's a valid fix for the stable tree, provided it's a valid fix
at all -- I'm pretty sure I've run the whole test suite under Purify
without it reporting any leaks.

I just looked again, and you are correct. I just missed where the pointer was kept track of. I'll review what I did and probably back that out of feature.
