while debugging a crashing pluto daemon, I came across an incorrect free.
Please see the attached patch, which fixes it.
Although I'm running this in production now, I haven't yet been able to
assess if it fixes the crash, because it only occurs once every few months
(but when it happens it happens several times a day). The patch is
really straightforward though.
The crash was first reported on the openswan users list:
