Indeed, I did! I changed the scope_set hashtable to free its keys on
destructions, but failed to ensure that all keys are copied - so the
test suite ended up trying to free the same string twice.
This is now corrected, and I pushed a new version of my branch out.

This proved to be trickier than anticipated, and I ran into a problem
with not being happy with the current implementation of value-pairs at
all. There's too much copying and magic going on for my taste.
I'm starting to see the reason why Bazsi wanted scratch buffers
implemented in another way - that way would make it easier for me to use
them in value-pairs too.
I'll see if changing scratch-buffer helps me in refactoring the key
rewrite patch into something saner.
