It depends what you mean by memory trashing.

To trap wild pointer errors and suchlike, take a look at valgrind.

To detect storage errors in your physical RAM, there are a number of different memory test utilities out there, but you could do worse that try to compile gcc from source. This is a large compile that uses a lot of pointers in memory, so any faults in your RAM will usually lead to seg-faults at different points in the compile.
