Hmm, it seems i must have been running 2.3.2 when this happened. I did recently upgrade to 2.3.3 and it no longer happens.

I tried to reproduce in Linux by installing freesounds multiple times, but there was no crash.

What's your version of gtk+?

2: Installing modpack freesounds.modpack from http://download.gna.org/freeciv/modinst/2.3/freesounds.modpack
Gdk:ERROR:gdkregion-generic.c:337:void miSetExtents(GdkRegion *): assertion failed: (pExtents->y1 < pExtents->y2)

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.
0x00007fff87b0ace2 in __pthread_kill ()
(gdb) quit

If this doesn't help i will recompile with debugging turned on.

Backtrace would help a lot here. Now we don't even know if the free() is in our own code or in some library.

Possibly relevant fact: i had forgotten i had installed freesound a long time ago. Presumably the error came about while trying to overwrite what was already there?

      • set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

Abort trap: 6
