I think that since free is done on uninitialized pointer, it is just 
pure luck that this pointer may sometimes be NULL, so free doesn't 
complain. For me this crash is best reproducible on x86_64, probably 
stack layout is different on this architecture so addrinfo doesn't get 
mapped on stack area with NULL values in it.
