yep, I see it now, it's fixed in your CVS. I was using the latest 
release, 4.11. Again, sorry for the noise.

So, there is nothing further to be done except possibly change the 
documentation of ev_set_allocator() because realloc(ptr, 0) is not 
required by C89 to have the same semantics as free(ptr) (see other thread).

Best regards,
