This omission is easy to fix, although testing it won't be so easy. Is it worth fixing? The protoString function is part of basic networking, also known as UUCP. I suspect that the number of people using UUCP is vanishingly small. The function is only called indirectly by the uucico command. A single small memory leak here won't make any difference to its operation. I'd leave it alone.
