What made you assume that?

If you look at commit a0a787ad78a72b1bb9e7f9f7f28d18a4023a666b, you will
see that the opposite is the case: it's vital to talloc_free() handles
when we close them - it is the talloc call that does the free. 

Any free the DCE/RPC server does is at shutdown, and way too late,
leaving a memory leak in the meantime. 

Please explain further or revert.
