Recent versions of glibc check various memory problems... free
non-malloc'd memory is one of them.  In this case, it's trivial but it
can help catch serious problem so it is a good thing even if it is a
little annoying at times.  (And I don't know of a way to temporarily
disable it.  Does anyone else?)

And I don't really expect you to test on every version of Linux. ;-)

I don't think I said that.  If I did, it wasn't what I meant.
