This just means you are screwing up memory in some way, perhaps by freeing
something twice or writing past the end of the array, which confuses the
memory management so at some later time malloc() fails to work properly.

It can be helpful to set the MALLOC_CHECK_ environment variable to 2 on 
glibc systems, read the man page for malloc() on Linux.

The efence package is also useful for trying to resolve these problems.
