Description prmiyas 2000-04-01 23:03:22 EST
I have noticed that sometimes when I compile a c++ program and run it I get
a segmentation fault.  then I run gdb at it points me to malloc.c.
However, the same code recompiled on Mandrake or Dec Unix runs fine.  I
think there is a problem with memory handling.  Thanks

This doesn't sound like a kernel issue, it's more likely a glibc or user space
program issue.

THis appears to be a user app that is broken and depends on the randomness of
memory misuse. Not kernel
