We can do that, or have it allocate (and free) based on the user data size given in the protocols struct... does the latter make any trouble if we fixed it that way?

That bit is good... you might have the same protocol callback handling ws and raw file side, so they have different callback reasons.


... but this isn't I guess it's some missing handling somewhere.

Is there a clue what happens?  You should use LWS_WRITE_HTTP as it stands (nearest thing to raw atm)
