A string buffer command is allocated on L559, but it's not freed if service_fns.LookupAccountNameA_fn returns FALSE. The patch I attached adds tor_free(command); in this else if branch.

Thanks for this patch!

I made it into a pull request at:

The fix looks good to me.

This code is not reachable in any supported tor version, so we don't need to backport the fix.
