I know it's not a "memory leak" the way you've done it because it's in
cleanup, but I changed the code to the following:

                 set_type::value_type p = *it;
                 delete p;
                 it = s.begin();

If I had delete *it before the erase() call, all hell broke loose and I
do not understand why (and have not had time to figure out yet.)
