Subject:memory leak or maybe redundant code

We've received the following report from a reporter:
I just had a look at factory package kismet-2009_06_R1-2.1

For source code file kismet-2009-06-R1/ around line
240, function Dumpfile_Tuntap::OpenTuntap, is the following code

ipc_dft_open *dfto = new ipc_dft_open;

but I fail to detect a matching call to delete. This looks like a memory
leak to me. I also notice that the only thing that happens
to local variable dfto is

dfto->tapdevice[0] = 0;

so it may be the case that dfto is a candidate for removal.
