Great, here's a good reason to fire it up:
Hint: your changes seem to be involved in the use-after-free and ensuing
crash found in the nightly testing ;-)
My offer still stands: I could add interested developers to CC of the
emails which report nightly test success or failure. I look at the
results rather sporadically; this time only two days have passed since
the tests started to fail, but it could easily be a week or more.
The tests still produce new valgrind leak reports for which I don't have
suppression rules; in particular the "potentially lost" reports seem to
be a bit random. Currently I'm still in the "ignore leaks" mode and just
suppress anything that I find.
