I am using C API library fro my windows application. Query execution completes, but running into an exception while closing mysql connection.

Here is the dump stack 

>	libmysql.dll!MEM_ROOT::Clear() Line 143	C++
 	libmysql.dll!free_root(MEM_ROOT * root, int flags) Line 262	C++
 	libmysql.dll!free_old_query(MYSQL * mysql) Line 1286	C++
 	libmysql.dll!mysql_close(MYSQL * mysql) Line 5215	C++
 	MySqlConnector.exe!MySqlInterface::~MySqlInterface() Line 352	C++
 	MySqlConnector.exe!main(int argc, char * * argv) Line 62	C++
 	[External Code]	

Using libmysql.dll built from latest code available in git. 

Application is throwing exception with c library packaged with MySQL 8.0.13 in windows.

How to repeat:
Build an application with c API, which initiates mysql connection, runs a query and closes the connection using 'mysql_close' function.

Suggested fix:
Find out the root cause for this heap corruption and fix it.

Thank you for the bug report. Please specific the exactly version, currently the client library for Windows is the one shipped together with server in lib folde. Also attach a test case client version. Thanks in advance.
