That certainly does look like a bug to me (accessing the node
after it was deleted).

However, you replaced the call to listnode_delete with a call
to the macro LISTNODE_DELETE (which is smart, there's no need to search
the list), but the LISTNODE_DELETE macro does not actually delete
the node (if you look at the macro, it removes the links but fails
to call listnode_free).

It looks like the LISTNODE_DELETE macro is never actually used anywhere
in quagga, so it's probably just a bug in that macro.  It might
make sense to patch the macro to call listnode_free, and to
patch the linklist.c:listnode_delete() function to use the macro.
