After some debugging with dmalloc, it looks like you were right on the
money with this.

I just tested the following patch and it ran through one download
successfully.  Woo!

You'll note the miscutil.c patch is the smaller of the two posted.

If I run the above under dmalloc, it fails towards the end with an
allocation error.  But I ran just find without it.  I may try to do some
more testing on that later.
