I found and fixed a bug in pool_free_old() that could leave some freed
extents on the list of currently allocated extents (in one code path).
If that were to happen, rsync would try to double-free the memory.

Hopefully the latest version in CVS (and the "nightly" tar file) will
avoid this crash now.
