checkAPI doesn't allow free because it also doesn't allow malloc; if the malloced memory is coming from library internals somewhere, does the library itself have a cleanup method we could call instead?


Unfortunately no. This is a corner case checkAPI is not able to handle.
A solution would be to try to push a cleanup function upstream, but I don't know how they are about that. And I guess it would take time, while we have a pending crash.
