Actually it should be ok to call free with NULL, just not with any
other invalid pointer:

,----[man free]
|      free()  frees the  memory space  pointed to  by ptr,  which must  have 
|      returned by a previous call to malloc(), calloc() or realloc().  
|      or if free(ptr) has already been called before, undefined behaviour 
|      If ptr is NULL, no operation is performed.
