I am trying to use valgrind on fbsd 6.2 patch 7 to find a memory leak in
an ecpg postgresql app. When I run valgrind after a few minutes I get
this error and valgrind terminates. Ideas?

PORTNAME=       valgrind
CATEGORIES=     devel

valgrind: vg_malloc2.c:1008 (vgPlain_arena_malloc): Assertion `new_sb !=
((void*)0)' failed.

Note: see also the FAQ.txt in the source distribution.
It contains workarounds to several common problems.

If that doesn't help, please report this bug to:

In the bug report, send all the above text, the valgrind
version, and what Linux distro you are using.  Thanks.
