[vox-tech] glibc bug?

this program runs fine when FULL is #defined and segfaults when it's not

i've seen this behavior on sarge (glibc 2.3.1), but it doesn't appear to
happen on RH (glibc 2.2.5).   btw, how does one find out which version
of RH is running?

before i write a bug report, i'd like to get confirmation that other
people see the problem.  if the problem isn't just with my system, it
would be useful to give a range of glibc versions in my bug report.


#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <malloc.h>
// #define FULL

int main(void)

#ifdef FULL
   char *p = (char *) malloc(20*sizeof(char));


#ifdef FULL

   return 0;
