I don't know where it comes from, I just give a short comment here.
I experience this kind of crash (in malloc) when KDE was compiled
with gcc-2.95(6) and -funroll-loops. I tried to debug it using gdb
and valgrind but couldn't find any reason. Using gcc-3.1, I couldn't
reproduce those crashes, whether -funroll-loops was used or not.
