Patch to prevent double free in demo-Gtk.c

I don't have FC4 system any more and so I cannot make use of core file.
But by checking xscreensaver-backtrace.txt in the attachment in the
comment 1, it is found that this is a problem of double-free in run_hack()
in demo-Gtk.c

A patch is attached to fix this problem.
Note: this problem is already fixed in version 4.24.
Comment 3 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:59:25 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 4 Scott R. Godin 2007-01-22 16:59:13 EST
fixed as of FC5. sorry I didn't get back to this to test it. thanks for the 

even if I point it at ~/Pictures now, which has some huge files in it, there 
are no coredumps.
