Ok, I can re-create, am looking at it.

But I don't actually get the crash in the same location, I get it at
free() time, when glibc complains about freeing a free'd memory data
structure. It happens on the

    free((void *)last_pi_entry);

for me (profile.c:1901), long before it even gets to the point you see.

And I suspect your crash is really the same, it's just that the heap
is corrupted and you get it at a different place when you use a
dynamic allocation.

I think it's just memory corruption, nothing quite as interesting at that.

Will look at it.
