[ft] Question about FT_Get_Sfnt_Name

I have a question about FT_Get_Sfnt_Name. The official documentation about this function( gives the following information:

The ??string?? array returned in the ??aname?? structure is not null-terminated. The application should deallocate it if it is no longer in use.

However, every time I try to free the string, it always causes a double-free error. The error prompts say something like this:
Error in `./testsample': double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x00000000023ff9e0

My code is as simple as the following:
FT_SfntName  name;
FT_Get_Sfnt_Name(face, i, &name);
free(name.string); //This line causes a double-free error.

I think the documentation is clear enough about who is responsible for deallocating the 'string' array, or do I misunderstand something in the documentation?

Thank you in advance.
