[openssl-users] Potential memory leak in RSA_private_decrypt

The product can be build in threaded or non-threaded mode. The memory leak
can be detected only in threaded mode. Hence I think I hit the same issue
reported by Thomas in 2012. 

"One thing I noticed is that all goes well if I cause the code to 
run sequentially (e.g. cause requests to come one ater another). Yet it 
starts eating up memory like crazy if I cause several (HTTPS) requests 
to come at once. "

Don't understand why this issue is not encountered by other users and why it
has not been fixed for so many years.
