    Avoid using released hosts
    Since h_Release_r has the possibility of freeing a host, we should not
    be using a host after it has been released. A few places can still use a
    released host, potentially causing heap corruption, double frees, and
    generally weird behavior.
    So either move calls of h_Release_r until after we finish using a host,
    or make sure to set the pointer to NULL after it has been released.
