#968 closed defect (fixed) problem with memory allocation

Reported by: marisn Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 6.4.3
Component: Vector Version: svn-releasebranch64
Keywords: Cc:
CPU: x86-64 Platform: Linux

Description does something wrong during memory allocation. Normaly it results into assertion in malloc call. malloc.c:4633: _int_malloc: Assertion `victim->fd_nextsize->bk_nextsize == victim' failed.

Valgrind reports invalid write (will attach full valgrind output as an attachment).

GRASS 6.4 r41215 on ~AMD64 Gentoo. 6.5 is also affected.

I'm unable to reproduce with Spearfish. Will attach sample dataset.

Can't attach sample location. Download it from here:

CPU: Unspecifiedx86-64
Version: unspecifiedsvn-releasebranch64

It works fine in 32bit Windows Vista running WinGRASS r41428 and still fails when running 64bit ~AMD64 Gentoo 6.4 r41436. 32bit vs 64bit issue?

Can anybody running 32bit Linux make described test to confirm 64bitness of this issue?

Still an issue for 6.4 and 6.5 SVNs.

Resolution: fixed

The recent improvements have solved the problem. The sample command is now processed properly. Closing.
