Comment(by lsansonetti@…):

 The first snippet is indeed a leak. Good catch, feel free to commit the
 fix :)

 The second one does not seem good, since _bs_main_bundle_bs_path() returns
 a static malloc()'ed string, so freeing it might cause a crash at next
 usage. It's probably better to leave it like this (it's just one allocated
 string for the whole process life).

 The third and fourth ones are not leaks. Memory allocated by xmalloc()
 will be free'ed automatically. xfree() forces memory free (sometimes, our
 GC is not deterministic) but it's not needed.
