Coverity reports seldom address really self-contained bugs, deserving an
ITS; most of them up to now referred to (intentionally not cared about)
leaks in test tools (those in tests/progs/) or one-time leaks in clients
(like not freeing all malloc'd memory before exit).  Occasionally,
reports found potential use of uninit'd vars, dead code or NULL
dereferencing, mostly in HEAD code, thus fixed before release.  Those
have been fixed as soon as reported, but the ITS does not make it into
CHANGES since affected code was never released.  Check CVS logs for
