These should be fixed in 1.7.1.  You can see the ticket (with a link  
to a patch you can try out) at 
  .  (Both problems listed in your email seem to be regarding the same  
allocation site where we weren't freeing the storage, just with  
different callers further up the stack.)  If that doesn't fix the  
problem for you, please let us know.
