Some memory leaks still survive there. As time permits I will keep on trying
to zero in this.

I forgot to mention a simple method which can help testing this patch. If curl
is invoked with NSS_DEBUG_PKCS11_MODULE environment variable set to "PEM", it
shows module's usage statistics. It is easy to check whether pem_Finalize
function is called or not.
