Re: Bug#249627: Alias + LC_CTYPE + function => segmentation fault

If it is a memory corruption caused by an invalid free, it is likely
that valgrind would either prevent it, or change the exact place where
the corruption occurs, thus changing the time it results in a
segmentation fault. I have seen that just having used "setopt" earlyer
changed a segfault on the second try into an infinite loop in the third
try: this problem is very sensitive to initial conditions.

I have tried Electric Fence, here is a backtrace, just after the second

ssecem% date

ElectricFence Aborting: free(403cdfe8): address not from malloc().
