Line 779 of lpd/printjob.c
            dup_cfpname = strdup(file);

>> You now lose the handle to this part of the memory. You will never be
>> able to free() it !! The whole preceeding line should be deleted since
>> it's goal is completed by the following line

            if (!(dup_cfpname = strdup(file)))
                {
                    syslog(LOG_ERR, "Can't allocate memory for temp cfp
file name");
                    return(OK);
                }
