dublicate #1896

comment:2 by axeld, 13 years ago

It doesn't have to be a duplicate of #1896. Whenever the allocator runs into a debugger call, it's because we run our allocator in debug mode. And that means it will detect *user* errors better.

Can you point out which source file this is and where I can find it? From the source you pasted here, you don't see where old_locale is initialized or allocated.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed
Version: R1/pre-alpha1R1/Development

Probably an application bug, too.
