I am not sure where you might have sent your email since I did not see 
it.

This is not much of a problem since the response to the error is for 
the whole program to exit (fatal error).  It is true that it may exit 
with allocated memory, but there is likely previously allocated memory 
which also would not be freed prior to the program's immediate exit.

The file handle is passed back via one of the pointer arguments for 
later use.
