g_list_free is for freeing an entire list, and may involve a loop, 
whereas g_list_free_1 is for freeing a single GList element. When the 
element has been cut from a list with g_list_remove_link, it's 
desirable to free it, and IMHO it's more transparent to use 
g_list_free_1 than g_list_free. That's all.
