Description:
Here is a use-after-free vulnerability: https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/blob/5.7/rapid/plugin/x/mysqlxtest_src/mysqlx_protoc...

if (!ret_val->IsInitialized())
    {
      delete[] mbuf;
      delete ret_val;  // <---- delete ret_val here
      std::string err("Message is not properly initialized: ");
      err += ret_val->InitializationErrorString(); // <---- use ret_val here
      throw Error(CR_MALFORMED_PACKET, err);
    }

Although it is in the test code, it is better to fix...

How to repeat:
It can be repeat always...
