It's a bit late in the thread, but I just wanted to mention that if
your executable and DLL both link to the *shared* version of msvcrt
(and the same shared version, e.g. mult-threaded debug,
single-threaded release, etc) and not the static version of msvcrt,
then you should have no problems deleting across dll boundaries. The
problem occurs when two different modules have two different copies of
the crt and one of those module tries to delete memory allocated by
the other module.

The reason you often see windows api calls providing functions like
NetApiFreeBuffer, etc is because they are implemented in a single dll
(usually kernel32.dll) and there is only 1 copy of that dll on your
system, that must work regardless of which version of the crt you link
