I need a "real" name here, one you use to sign legal documents please.

Checking the "magic" field is odd, are you sure about this? Usually
this means that memory that is already freed is still being used, right?

And have you tried the 5.0-rc6 release? I thought I fixed much this
same issue there already, but for a serial port, not a pty. Is the same
problem still present?

Using the "magic" field as a flag isn't the best thing for us to rely
on, because this structure should be freed now, right?

thanks,
