SoundPlay crashes twice a day in _memory_span_set_new_active()
|Reported by:||ttcoder||Owned by:||nobody|
Just in from Dane's test... SP never crashed this way in BeOS and in previous hrevs, and the SP code base hasn't changed in years. Crashes started occuring just now, after updating to hrev53379 .
The backtrace always mentions av_malloc() or variants, so maybe a media-kit regression like a double-free ?
It seems more likely to be OOM-related though; i.e. all reports mention > 600 MB memory usage. Waddlesplash fixed an issue with memory fragmentation recently, maybe Dane should update from 53379 ? I see lots of "heap area" 's listed in the report, not sure if that's related. They do seem to cover the 32bit spectrum, from 0x00101000 to 0x7fe17000
Tentatively assigning to libroot/malloc heap for now, please adjust.
