Bug: free_char does not clean up all necessary strings
Danger: High - Memory leak with possible corruption
Found by: Keberus
Fixed by: Keberus

---

db.c, free_char

Locate:
   while( ( bugs = ch->first_bug ) != NULL )
   {
      UNLINK( bugs, ch->first_bug, ch->last_bug, next_in_bug, prev_in_bug );
      DISPOSE( bugs );
   }

   while( ( contract = ch->first_contract ) != NULL )
   {
      UNLINK( contract, ch->first_contract, ch->last_contract, next_in_contract, prev_in_contract );
      DISPOSE( contract );
   }

   while( ( fellow = ch->first_fellow ) != NULL )
   {
      UNLINK( fellow, ch->first_fellow, ch->last_fellow, next, prev );
      DISPOSE( fellow );
   }


Change to:
   while( ( bugs = ch->first_bug ) != NULL )
   {
      UNLINK( bugs, ch->first_bug, ch->last_bug, next_in_bug, prev_in_bug );
      STRFREE( bugs->name );
      DISPOSE( bugs );
   }

   while( ( contract = ch->first_contract ) != NULL )
   {
      UNLINK( contract, ch->first_contract, ch->last_contract, next_in_contract, prev_in_contract );
      DISPOSE( contract->target );
      DISPOSE( contract );
   }

   while( ( fellow = ch->first_fellow ) != NULL )
   {
      UNLINK( fellow, ch->first_fellow, ch->last_fellow, next, prev );
      STRFREE( fellow->knownas );
      STRFREE( fellow->victim );
      DISPOSE( fellow );
   }


Dangling strings left behind in memory when each player quits/logs out etc and is extracted from the game. Leaving these things behind eventually results in resource draining and can lead to data corruption in extreme cases.
