This has happened a couple of times while I was editing a recording. On exit I would get this (I have included 2 different outputs) -

* glibc detected * mythfrontend: free(): invalid pointer: 0xb350ae3c * ======= Backtrace: ========= /lib/tls/i686/cmov/[0xb5ba3d65] /lib/tls/i686/cmov/[0xb5ba7800] /usr/lib/[0xb6627061] /usr/local/lib/[0xb77fad26] /usr/lib/[0xb661bcdd] /usr/lib/[0xb631d80c] /usr/lib/[0xb62cb28c] /usr/lib/[0xb66b6b6b] /usr/lib/[0xb631072a] /usr/lib/[0xb6311116] /usr/lib/[0xb63113f2] /usr/local/lib/[0xb6d98fa7] ======= Memory map: ========

We need the Valgrind memcheck output or at least a proper gdb backtrace.

Came home tonight and reproduced it. Then recompiled with debug and guess what?! Yup cannot reproduce after 30mins trying. I am giving up. You can consider this closed. If I can do it again I will update... <sigh>..

The optimisations used for release builds can cause all sorts of weird segfaults which are then unreproducible with debug builds. (I'm trying to figure out one right now with libmythui)
