  icomment:  I think that would be a further improvement.  Will look into it.

             The code is messy, fragile, and abandoned  by the originator, so it
             improves only in  tiny, tentative incremental changes, usually
             motivated by actual bugs and crashes, not  just aesthetic concerns.

             Someone who really got up a head of steam  to make it much much better
             would be better  off rewriting the thing from the ground up,  IMO.

             That said, the memleak in the separator  handling from a VFS looks
             legit and   properly fixed.
