Subject: [PATCH] trap: fix memory leak in exitshell()
Date: Mon, 21 Nov 2016 22:40:52 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20161121214052.32428-1-andreas@gazonk.org> (raw)

After dash had executed the exit trap handler, the trap was reset but
the pointer was never freed. This leak can be demonstrated by running
dash through valgrind and executing the following shell script:

	foo() {
	trap foo EXIT

Fix by properly freeing the trap pointer in exitshell().
