No need to do all that.  I was freeing, and I knew where.  I commented 
out the code and the automatic rollback worked (...much testing required 
yet (-;).  Basically, I created a subroutine that given an rpmte it would
search for its repackaged package.  I was malloc'ing the space for the
repackage package's name (rpn), and dutifully freeing it...sigh.

The thing I don't know how to do then is make sure that the memory gets 
freeed.  I suppose I could free it in the function that runs the rollback;
walk through the rpmte's and if their package key was not null free it.
Bother.  You wouldn't happen to have a better idea?
