Thanks for the quick reply!  I do wonder whether there's more to it than
that, though, particularly in light of the similar if not identical
errors libqtdbusmock proceeded to hit on mips (which I reported as
#879942 just after you sent your reply).

More specifically, this looks like the sort of error that could arise
after prematurely freeing memory.  Have you tried running under
Valgrind, or locally building with -fsanitize=address?
