malloc as I traced to where the string got freed and saw it was freed by
free (seems sensible).
As I'm linking statically to raptor this doesn't present much of a
problem, but if I was to link dynamically to raptor this would most
likely cause problems (on Win32 at least, as the dll's don't - have to?

understand it (and that's what has given me quite a few problems in the
past, with other libraries).
Am I overlooking something? On Win32 this could be solved by simply
adding a raptor_alloc_function or letting the user of the library free
the memory in some way (the module that allocates the memory should also
