Hi Steven,

it appears your recent commit:

        Fix memory leaks. Make sure that newstr and copystr are always used as needed.

has introduced serious testresult regiressions. I am on Ubuntu 11.10 and the test
results are 85 PASS, 10 FAIL, much worse than usual. The first failing test is core_d12,
which is very basic functionality test. If I back out your change, I get back to test results
of 93/2, which is expected.

For avoidance of doubt, Jam was built without Python support and tests were run using Jam codebase,
not the Python port.

Do you think you can investigate this problem?
