A crash in malloc often occurs because the heap has been corrupted earlier
in the program flow (for instance by freeing the same memory twice).

I suggest that you use a dedicated memory debugging utility to find the
problem. Pick your favorite from (mine is, without a doubt, Purify, but
something like Electric Fence may solve your problem)
