Can you give us some background information about this system? What OS  
and version, who built the package, etc.

Do you have valgrind available?

Your version of glibc probably has some more thorough memory  
corruption detection algorithms than the default - "man malloc" on one  
of my systems suggests that setting the MALLOC_CHECK_ environment  
variable to either 1 or 2 will print some additional diagnostics.
