(ITS#8312) LMDB corruption, perhaps in freelist code

Submission from: (NULL) (

Please find linked a test program (replay.c) that consistently fails on
my centos 7 system. It parses captured commands from a text file.  I'm
afraid they are quite large, I haven't been able to reduce them further.

The problem manifests itself in many different ways in my real system,
sometimes I get MDB_CORRUPTED, sometimes MDB_BAD_TXN, sometimes errno EFBIG
(and an unexpectedly large file) and sometimes a NULL pointer crash in

Given that valgrind complains about invalid read of size 8 in
mdb_freelist_save/mdb_cursor_put, I'm *guessing* that the freelist code is
put'ing an invalid MDB_val, leading to corruption.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

See the linked backtrace.txt for example runs. There are three captured
replay logs (replay[123].txt) that show different failures.

This was tested with lmdb git master from github:
