Hi Artyom,

I just realized I was still using 0.9.0, sorry for the confusion!

I think this is incorrect.  AIUI, with 2.0.12, the SMOB type predicate
is always false, so you end up never freeing anything; see smob.c:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
static void
finalize_smob (void *ptr, void *data)
  SCM smob;
  scm_t_bits smobnum;
  size_t (* free_smob) (SCM);

  smob = PTR2SCM (ptr);
  smobnum = (scm_t_bits) GC_call_with_alloc_lock (clear_smobnum, ptr);

#if 0
  printf ("finalizing SMOB %p (smobnum: %u)\n", ptr, smobnum);

  free_smob = scm_smobs[smobnum].free;
  if (free_smob)
    free_smob (smob);
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Here ‘clear_smobnum’ is the procedure that changes PTR to have the
“finalized smob” type.

So the right thing would be to replace:

  struct session_data *data = _scm_to_session_data (session_smob);

… with:

  struct session_data *data = SCM_SMOB_DATA (session_smob);

Does it make sense?
