New submission from Zachary Blair <zachary.blair at gmail.com>:

>From inspecting the code in install.c's DeleteRegistryValue() and DeleteRegistryKey() functions, it appears as though there can be a small memory leak in the event that either function is passed an invalid argument.

This patch corrects this issue by making sure to free any allocated memory before returning, even when an invalid argument is passed in.
