As an aside, I've found libumem to be very useful in doing QA testing. I love to pound on code with these settings exported in the environment:

One can find memory leaks, double free's, writes past allocated buffers, and more with libumem. And integrated with dbx and -g compiled source, finding the problem will be easier than ever.
