actually it still does, but it looks like another issue,
I think we need patch below.. I'll now check rest of your
patches.

Steven,
does the patch below make sense to you? I dont think we want
to allow freeing of the event_format that pevent keeps in
the array.

The libtraceevent library's main handle 'struct pevent' holds
pointers of every event that was added to it via functions:
  pevent_parse_format
  pevent_parse_event

All added events are released within the handle cleanup
in pevent_free.
