Commit a5af33ce9a16 ("instance: strdup string attributes") has
introduced duplication of various string attributes in order to fix
use-after-free, but missed handling of one `pidfile` attribute case in
instance_config_move() where the new value of `pidfile` is being
copied/assigned. Source of this value is then free()d in following call
to instance_free() and then again for 2nd time during the service stop
command handling, leading to double free crash:

 #0  unmap_chunk at src/malloc/malloc.c:515
 #1  free at src/malloc/malloc.c:526
 #2  instance_free (in=0xd5e300) at instance.c:1100
 #3  instance_delete (in=0xd5e300) at instance.c:559
 #4  instance_stop (in=0xd5e300, halt=true) at instance.c:611
