Oh. I didn't spot that. If I read the header right, that is only the case when GNUTLS_INTERNAL_BUILD is defined; but that appears to be the case in all of the gnutls code base?  So you are right that the code base is avoiding stale pointers in a lot more places than I thought on my first read through.
