Sorry, I was a bit confused here. A previous implementation I have seen
deleted the nodes on clear(), and suffered from the problems I outlined
above. I had assumed that this implementation did the same, but now I
have double checked I see that instead it just unlinks the nodes and
lets them go free. That makes more sense.
