There's a lot of AND-ing of hash codes to determine the segments and

Ok, here's the final patch I'd propose to fix the memory leak. I've seen
no measurable performance degradation compared to the base revision and

Feedback welcome.

What happens is SEGMENT_COUNT is not a power of 2? Or, what obliges SEGMENT_COUNT to be a power of 2?


That was my assumption when I saw 'MASK', in which case is it not safer to ensure that your value is in fact all ones?


or some such.
