HLFS: sed-4.1.4 & uClibc-0.9.28, Memory Exhausted.

After successful toolchain installation of sed, I then tried to use it in the
next program and got the following error:
sed -e: expression #1, char 35: Memory exhausted

My memory usage is was 170mb/512mb.

Looking into uclibc-0.9.28, I only noticed under: General Library Settings--->
Malloc returns live pointer for malloc(0) (NEW)
which is not set.

Looking into the sed sources, I found 3 files calling malloc and then returning
REF_ESPACE, which seems to be a macro that ends up printing the message I saw.

All of the comparisons I found, compare against NULL, as uClibc claims they

I cannot seem to find the problem here.

By now, a patch has been made and the problem is resolved.
This is here in case for some reason somebody comes across this message again.
Check Linux From Scratch's website for the sed patch.
