***UNCHECKED*** Re: [CWB] MU queries problem

And again ... *gaaaaaaah* ... now I'm sending it as an encrypted ZIP  
archive, as the mailing list server suggests, and you'll have to find  
out how to decrypt it.  Password is "ihatesslmit". ;o)

2nd attempt ... the stupid mailing list host at SSLMIT doesn't allow  
gzipped Linux binaries in messages (which it calls "banned filename  
(.exe)"), so I'm trying a .tar.gz archive now ...

Hi everybody!

Thanks for digging up this problem and filing a bug report on the  
sf.net page, Serge!  While I was trying to identify the cause of the  
problem (which turned out to be as silly as such bugs always are), I  
stumbled on a very big and mean memory leak in the implementation of  
MU queries ...

I think I've been able to fix both bugs (in version 2.2.b97) and hope  
to make the CWB sourcecode available soon.  In the meantime, I've  
attached a Linux binary of CQP with the bugfix applied - thorough  
testing would be very welcome!

Best & thanks again,
