Description Jay Fenlason 2006-11-12 21:08:16 EST
Description of problem: 
I'm porting some very old code to modern Linux, and running it under valgrind 
to find errors.  Sometimes valgrind exits (the shell says Abort, but does not 
generate a core file) without warning, killing my program. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
It's happened twice so far.  Because the behavior of the program is random and 
interactive, finding a programmable reproducer may be hard. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. run valgrind --log-file=valgrind --leak-check=full ./hack 
2.play the game a while 
Actual results: 
[hack@localhost hack]$ valgrind --log-file=valgrind --leak-check=full ./hack 
[hack@localhost hack]$ 
Expected results: 
Game should continue until I lose.

I'm afraid that without a reproducer there is nothing I can do about this.
Try to recompile rawhide valgrind for RHEL4 and use that instead to see if that
makes a difference.
