There's a call to string_init on decl about 10 lines above the
above diff, just outside of context, but it's unconditional, so
I figured that would be enough.

Also, if gnu_special returns false, and the call to
demangle_prefix returns false then we call (near the bottom of
internal_cplus_demangle) mop_up, which calls string_delete.

Given that decl is initialised once, assuming that the string is
only released using delete_string then the internal state will
have been reset back to NULL, so calling delete_string should
be safe again.

Could you let me know if this is enough, or give me more details
on where you think the problem is as I'm missing it :)

Thanks for taking a look at this.
