Description Geoff Gustafson 2007-05-18 11:25:42 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed FC7 test4 yesterday and emacs worked fine. Then I did a yum update
and now when I run emacs I get:

*** glibc detected *** emacs: malloc(): memory corruption: 0x0000000002897380 ***
======= Backtrace: =========
/lib64/libc.so.6[0x2aaaac4a9d8c]
/lib64/libc.so.6(__libc_malloc+0x7d)[0x2aaaac4ab69d]
emacs[0x50ac5c]
/lib64/libc.so.6[0x2aaaac460ebd]
/lib64/libc.so.6[0x2aaaac46174a]
/lib64/libc.so.6[0x2aaaac46088d]
/lib64/libc.so.6(setlocale+0x15e)[0x2aaaac46026e]
emacs[0x4b285f]
/lib64/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xf4)[0x2aaaac456aa4]
emacs[0x40d9e9]

This occurs with glibc-2.6-1. If I revert to glibc-2.5.90-21 emacs runs okay again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.6-1

How reproducible:
Only tried on this one box, Intel D3C8A06 SDV. But I reverted only glibc and it
was fixed. Then I upgraded to 2.6-1 again, problem came back. Reverted again and
it was fixed again.
