Sorry, I noticed that the senario I gave above was actually bogus.
Typically free will call r_alloc_sbrk(0) and check the return value
with respect to the area to be reclaimed before calling r_alloc_sbrk
with a negative argument.

Now I don't have a concrete senario to conclude that it is wrong to
change use_relocatable_buffers temporarily.  I'm really sorry if my
previous posts confused you.
