Hmm, yeah. Out of memory is unlikely; the core is only a couple hundred MB
on a dedicated 2GB box. t_delete is in the depths of the Solaris malloc
implementation. I'll ask Sun if they can make anything out of "malloc(35)"
causing a SEGV; doesn't exactly sound like documented behavior.
You're right that without a memory debugger it's tough to trust any of
this. But it's also tough to run a memory debugger in production...they
generally slow things down a bit more than I'd like.
