Runtime error while developing gnome applet.

I am trying to develop a panel applet and I have run into a problem that I
can't find the cause of.  I get a segmentation violation at a constant point
in my program from malloc though g_malloc.  The backtrace from gdb is:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x40482609 in chunk_free (ar_ptr=0x40512580, p=0xa09926da) at malloc.c:3003

the error comes from:
(char )g_malloc(sizeof(char)*(strlen(name)+1))

name should actually be:

weather this is gdb truncating it or some other problem I don't know.

If you need to see the source code I can send it to an indavidual or
the list, I just didn't want to waste bandwidth if someone knew
without it.

Thaks in advance.
