fileio_init() calls PyMem_Free(name); whereas name comes from 
PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords().

Attached patch removes this invalid call.

The bug may also affect Python3.0.

thanks.  fixed in trunk r64758.  i'm assuming that'll be merged into
py3k automagically.

In 3.0 the free is necessary, though see http://bugs.python.org/issue3662 .
