Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2001-11-01 15:49:43 UTC
Huh? In what way does this seem like a libfam bug?

libfam does have weak symbols for __builtin_delete and __builtin_vec_delete, so
it's perfectly ok for them to show up in the backtrace. But it is not the fault
of libfam any more than libc (__libc_free is also in the backtrace).

This looks like a double free in KHTTML. Reassigning to kde-libs.
Try running with export _MALLOC_CHECK=2 to find the bug easier.
