Comment (by mcayland):

 Right - that's much better as it's fairly obviously failing in xmlFree().
 This looks to me as if it's the same problem as this:

 Windows won't allow you to malloc/free memory across different DLL
 boundaries; so it looks to me as if either the GML code is allocating
 memory with lwalloc() which it is then attempting to free with xmlFree(),
 or the other way around.

 Olivier, any thoughts on this?
