Various resource leaks in various parts of Tor (found by coverity scan)

We've got coverity running on our code again, and predictably, it's found a few resource leaks. Most are leak-on-hard-to-trigger-error cases, but one or two are repeating leaks on a successful operation.

This is an omnibus ticket for the lot of them, so I can point to something and say "please review this."

Please review "bug7816_023" and "bug7816_024" for fixes on 0.2.3 and 0.2.4. Only two of the memory leaks happen in Tor under regular operation on a happy machine. I say we merge them all (pending review) in 0.2.4, and consider whether those two are backport material for 0.2.3.

Merged bug7816_023 into master, but not into 0.2.3. Waiting to hear what weasel thinks of that.

Added another leak fix to bug7816_023, and to master.

Let's look at weasel's comment on #8718 to decide what to do with the two 'active' leaks here.
