Subject: CVE Request: pycurl use after free fixed in version 7.19.5.2

Dear all,

pycurl reports fixing a use after free in version 7.19.5.2[0]

* Fixed a use after free in HTTPPOST when using FORM_BUFFERPTR with
  a Unicode string (patch by Clint Clayton).

This seems to be in the file src/easy.c fixed in commit
602f8e364634d386524f0396e962c2c9de0536a9[1]

I haven't looked into the code in any detail for exploitability, but
my understanding is that use-after-free generally gets assigned a CVE
based on CWE 416[2], if so may you please assign a CVE to this issue?
