This variant did not leak (comparing to dev.11) -
it allocates *too much memory* in the pool,
and pool is freed later - in HText_free.

Perhaps, you did not see memory corruption since memory overrun
within the same pool chunk is not seen by memory debugger.

There may be another palliative variant using freeHTLine:
we malloc/free the last line each time, but other lines
are allocated in the pool. (To free the last line
we store its pointer in other place). May supply a patch.
