I see severe memory leaks with these changes, up to triggering aisexec
to be killed in malloc(), and the clients also leak memory.

No other crashes though.

BTW, I'm again inclined to highlight the usefulness of a dedicated
branch/repo/patch series instead of a single combined patchkit. It would
make this so much easier to review during this development cycle and for
later merge too. Single patchkits are so CVS-1990s ;-)
