Description Per Steinar Iversen 2005-02-22 08:03:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20050117 Fedora/1.7.5-3

Description of problem:
On x86_64: Start top in xterm windows. Resize the window continously,
eventually top dies with the message:

*** glibc detected *** realloc(): invalid next size:
0x000000000062b310 ***

The long hex number in the error message seems to be different each time.

If top is started this way there is more info:


*** glibc detected *** realloc(): invalid pointer: 0x000000000060f520 ***
*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x0000000000610970

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start top in terminal windows
2. Resize the window a number of times
3. Eventually top dies

Actual Results:  top dies

Expected Results:  top should continue to run

Additional info:

This happens on both i686 and x86_64
