I don't say FREELISTPKGS should be always used when dealing with 

But, the point was to discuss your patch which basically calls 
FREELISTPTR instead of FREELISTPKGS from the trans_free function.
In this specific function, the latter _must_ be used (obviously if we're 
not in the case of a SYNC transaction).

Can you please confirm that the bug we are discussing is occurring with 
the code from the official ArchLinux CVS tree?
