Looking over the code, I kinda doubt that key_freesp() is being called
twice on the same entry outside of the cache.  I'm pretty sure that it's
the cache that's doing it.  Also, the pointers to the entry appear to be
copied all over, not just in the cache code.  I don't know that it would
be possible to set all of the pointer to NULL, let alone know where they
all are.
