An old memory leak is not severe enough for 4.8 at this stage, so I'll
queue this to 4.9.

BTW, either my Gnus or my SMTP server (I haven't bothered to check yet
why exactly) don't like the names with style of "(open list:NETWORKING
DRIVERS)" in the CC list, I have to edit them away everytime I reply.
Does anyone have any ideas why that's happening just to me?
