Description of problem:
pluma periodically crashes with "*** Error in `/usr/bin/pluma': malloc(): smallbin double linked list corrupted: 0x08b68458 ***"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
90% of the time I use it. Usually after saving and/or scrolling around. Sometimes it'll happen a few times in a half hour period. Other times it doesn't happen at all.
Which DE are you using?
#3 0x446350c5 in __libc_message (do_abort=do_abort@entry=2, fmt=fmt@entry=0x4473f334 "*** Error in `%s': %s: 0x%s ***\n") at ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/libc_fatal.c:196

That is glibc *detecting* a memory corruption, which is usually caused by writing over freed memory or a heap buffer overflow or something similar. It is not a bug *in* glibc.
upstream is informed.
upstream has closed the issue!
"Closing... Unluckily there are no enough info to reproduce the problem. Feel free to re-open if there will be more info"
Feel free to report directly at the upstream report if you have more info.
