RE: (ITS#8222) memory administration in ldap_parse_result()

Providing an update:  Not surprisingly, the actual memory leak was in our a=
pplication software (error message allocated by ldap_parse_result() not fre=
ed in unusual case).  But our debugging/analysis tools continued to report =
memory allocated but not freed even after the problem was fixed, and I beli=
eve that was due to the issue I reported with how internal (library) memory=
 linked to the LDAP structure is allocated/freed by ldap_parse_result() (al=
located while processing a response, but not freed until the next time the =
connection associated with that LDAP structure is used).
