In fread_planet, under "GovernedBy" the return value of fread_string() is fed directly into get_clan().

if( !str_cmp( word, "GovernedBy" ) )
{
  planet->governed_by = get_clan( fread_string( fp ) );
  fMatch = TRUE;
}


Since fread_string() STRALLOCs it, this memory is never freed. A possible solution is rewriting it as such:

if( !str_cmp( word, "GovernedBy" ) )
{
  char *clan_name = fread_string( fp );
  planet->governed_by = get_clan( clan_name );
  fMatch = TRUE;
  STRFREE( clan_name );
}


The same applies to "Starsystem" a few lines below.
