[PATCH] wt-status: use separate variable for result of shorten_unambiguous_ref




Store the pointer to the string allocated by shorten_unambiguous_ref in
a dedicated variable, short_base, and keep base unchanged.  A non-const
variable is more appropriate for such an object.  It avoids having to
cast const away on free and stops redefining the meaning of base, making
the code slightly clearer.
