This problem was found by one of the engineers looking at problems.

The fix appears to be:

Comment 1 Richard Sharpe 2012-03-22 13:43:40 UTC
This seems like such an obvious thing that I will push a fix for this today.
Comment 2 Richard Sharpe 2012-03-22 13:45:32 UTC
Except, it is already fixed ... at least master.
Comment 3 Richard Sharpe 2012-03-22 13:50:57 UTC
OK, I see. Jeremy fixed it yesterday. I agree with the move to talloc.

To complete the attributions, the problem was found by Shyam Vanga at Dell/Ocarina when QA reported a crash.
