Oh, this might be due to my unfortunate quoting style. My message (the very same
upon you were asking this question) contained a copy of the original bug description.
I requote the relevant part:

"Problem: When using release on a tss variable, the associated cleanup routine seems not to
be updated correctly as it tries to delete the original pointer, instead of the 0-pointer."

I accompanied this with a small example that displays the error. I am assuming, that calling
release should relinquish control of the contained pointer, but in fact it does not, which results
in doubly freeing the data.
