Basically, the Q3/JKA memory management is poor - Do not follow their examples!
More at this thread
(Old JA+ exploit)
"When you assign dynamic memory as a buffer for anything, be sure to free the damn memory when you are done with it!"
Otherwise, if that function is called enough, the memory pool will overflow and crash the server - Not a good thing at all!
For the most part, it's not a problem..but if us mod authors are allocating memory for whatever reason, free it!
I don't see why it's that poor. It's just lazy modders who are used to languages with memory management systems. Being in C, Q3/JKA figure you are going to clean up your own messes
