Sorry I can'tprovide a backtrace, but here is some assembly:

I'm not sure what's going on. If you need mroe information I can try to provide it. And a suspcious file is attached, possibly causing the segfault

Sometimes when it crashes, it says the following in terminal:

pretendo: /Buildbot/nightly-uploader/workdir/haiku/src/system/libroot/posix/malloc/superblock.h:272:int BPrivate::superblock::isValid(): _numBlocks > 0

Hoard is the userland heap allocator used in Haiku, so a crash there generally implies the app has corrupted the heap somehow. There are quite a few possible causes of that though, and without knowing the app better it's difficult to say, but it's generally an issue on the app's end. One possibility is a global or static object getting deleted at some point by the app, and then the cleanup routines at exit attempting to delete it again. Without knowing the app better it's pretty much impossible to be more specific than that though. Also note that when it crashes, a backtrace should get dumped to syslog if that helps.

You could also try running the app with malloc debug enabled to hopefully catch where things are going wrong sooner, c.f. for instructions on usage.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by scanty

Please close this bug as well. I don't remember exactly how I fixed it, but I think I found the problem with malloc debug. There is no segfault anymore. I really feel the need to apologise for reporting bugs that are my own fault. Sorry guys -- you're doing a great job.
