[patch@27609] vms pool corruption fix for _NLA0:
Message ID:

In vms.c, the sys$parse() call for cleaning up a search context was 
called after ther buffers assigned to the structure had already been freed.

This path was always exercised by the code for handling doing a stat() 
call for "_NLA0:" where the pool corruption caused the stat() call to fail.

This patch fixes the search context to be cleared before the buffers are 
freed and also by default disables the work around for having NLA0: 
handled special.
