#246: libssh2_session_free does not release channels

 If libssh2_session_free is called without the channel being freed
 previously by libssh2_channel_free a memory leak could occur.

 A mismatch of states variables in session_free() prevent the call to
 libssh2_channel_free function. session->state member is used instead of

 It causes a leak of around 600 bytes on every connection on my systems
 (Linux, x64 and PPC).

 The following patch correct the problem. Note that I am not sure of the
 state usage at line 861:

 if (session->state & LIBSSH2_STATE_NEWKEYS)

 I think it must stay as session->state.

 (Debugging done under contract for Accedian Networks)
