I have already tried - malloc.c 1.93, 1.94 and 1.95 seems to break 
joe and Xorg on amd64 (so far only two applications I have found not 
working). On i386 so far I haven't experienced such problems.
I have tried switching back to malloc.c 1.92 and I don't experience any 
problems on amd64. Running joe through gdb reports that it breaks 
somewhere in libncurses..
