Bug: Bad project log keyword will cause a memory leak
Danger: Medium - Only occurs during bootup
Found by: Remcon
Fixed by: Remcon

---

db.c, read_log

Locate:
      else
      {
         DISPOSE( nlog );
         bug( "%s", "read_log: bad key word." );
         return NULL;
      }


Change to:
      else
      {
         STRFREE( nlog->sender );
         STRFREE( nlog->date );
         STRFREE( nlog->subject );
         STRFREE( nlog->text );
         DISPOSE( nlog );
         bug( "%s", "read_log: bad key word." );
         return NULL;
      }


If a bad keyword in a project file is encountered then the log is not disposed of properly. All of the text fields that might have been read in will be leaked into the string hash. This isn't a very critical leak though since it will only happen at bootup.
