Re: Complex config triggering Segfault in pattern matching code.

That'll happen sometimes if the error is related to a signal being
handled or something like that.  Zsh isn't internally "multi-threaded"
so the only source of race conditions is signals (including child
process exits).

} Anyway, here's the STDERR from "valgrind -v -v".

That's probably more detail than is useful -- in fact, just "valgrind -q"
would probably suffice if you're going to run it for a long time.

} It shows some errors

==7806== 1 errors in context 1 of 2:

We can fix that one:

I have no idea what to do with that one; that line is:
