*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size
(Developer environment: CentOS 4.7, KDevelop 3.1.1, gcc 3.4.5)
I created a c++ shared library and a test executable that uses this shared library. Things work fine.
But when I load this library through Java ie Java calls JNI which in turn loads this shared library, there is an error which states "*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size". The application exits after this. This error comes during loading phase of shared library.
Can anyone suggest what might be the possible reason for this?
I am using Java version 1.6.0_17 (build 1.6.0_17-b04). Could there a compatibility issue between this version and the C/C++ runtime libraries?
[Doing rpm -q shows glibc version on my machine as glibc-2.3.4-2.41 and libstdc++ version as libstdc++-3.4.6-10
