> This doesn't make sense to me. msg is allocated with a starting value, then the relevant feature names are added one at a time in the for loop, allocating a new string each time. Where is msg getting double-freed? ISTM your change will leak all of the strings except the last one.
There is still a g_free(msg) inside the for loop, though it's not
visible in the patch only.
The msg free I removed is outside the for-loop, and frees msg two lines
before it is returned to the calling function. The calling function also
calls a free -> double free.
