[PATCH] Delete temporary string within demangler even in failure cases.


Spotted that a call to demangle_template might allocate storage within a
temporary string even if the call to demangle_template eventually returns
failure.
This will never cause the demangler to crash, but does leak memory, as a
result I've not added any tests for this.

Calling string_delete is safe, even if nothing is allocated into the
string, the string is initialised with string_init, so we know the internal
pointers are NULL.

I don't have gcc write privilages, so if this is approved could someone
please commit for me.

Thanks,
Andrew
