It was never mentioned on the mailing list when the patches came
originally, so I suspect is just an omission.

Presumably the SSL_CTX is needed by the connection that survives after
the function, but my reading of SSL_CTX_free implies that the data is
reference-counted, and the library would presumably handle it fine.

OTOH, it is probably not causing a huge problem (since we wouldn't end
up freeing it until the end of the program anyway), so I would not
personally devote to many brain cycles to figuring out how OpenSSL
handles it.
