1. Add section to perlxs.pod describing that the refcount of AVs/HVs
   returned from XSUBs through RETVAL isn't decremented as it is for
   SVs. This causes those XSUBs to leak memory and cannot be fixed
   without breaking existing CPAN modules that work around this bug.

2. Fix a memory leak of that kind in POSIX::localconv.
