Comment (by dwmw2):

 Note, the patch above fixes '''two''' leaks. Firstly, using
 `g_value_set_string()` was leaking the strings because after being
 duplicated into the GValue, they don't ever get freed. Secondly, the old
 `data->results` was being leaked on each update.

 AFAICT the only ''point'' in keeping `data->results` around in the first
 place was if we thought we were using `g_value_set_static_string()` and
 using the copy from there anyway, so that's the approach my patch takes.
