Wine error: "glibc detected ... invlaid pointer"


When trying to run "wine notepad &" to test my installation the following happens, any ideas what's going wrong?

Code:
iain@iains:~$ wine notepad &
[1] 1904
iain@iains:~$ *** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x406af6ac ***
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Usage: winedbg [--auto] [--gdb] cmdline

iain@iains:~$
And running windbg gives:

Code:
iain@iains:~$ winedbg notepad
WineDbg starting on pid 0xa
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x406af6ac ***
First chance exception: assertion failed in 32-bit code (0x4006ffd1).
In 32 bit mode.

iain@iains:~$
The process then just sits there and does nothing (tested by leaving it running for one hour!)

My wine version is 20041019 and I'm running slackware current.

TIA

notepad.exe contains a pointer to something that hasn't been allocated, and is trying to free it. This could well be down to DLL problems (running with the wrong dlloverrides options). MSVC will treat this as a NOOP, while (I suspect) an ANSI C library will treat it as a fault.

It sits there and does nothing because it's handling the exception by stopping the process.

The first thing to try is upgrading your version of Wine.

Also, see the notepad entry in the Wine compatibility database: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?appId=848

As my OP stated, I'm already running the latest version (20041019)

I have already used winesetuptk to set winver to win98 and also run wine in managed mode.

Any other ideas please?
