You got that right.  Which is my point exactly.  If free blows out w/o
a nested exception handle to catch it... The entire object goes into
limbo and will never be free and thus cause a memory leak.  Tell me
someone here realises this (other than me ;-) is the essential point
of this entire thread or I'm going to be very disappointed...
