one of our 4 eDirectory8.8 SP8-servers on SLES11 (Patchlevel 2) on
HYPERV crashed frequently last year.

we did not find the reason for it and we set MALLOC_CHECK_ in
/opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin/pre_ndsd_start to "0"

We first thougth that the "xdasauditds"-modul is the reson for the
crashes or the combination XDAS<->IDM4.0.2 but we have XDAS and IDM4.0.2
running on another of our 4 eDirectory-servers.

Today eDirectory crashed after couple of months running with
Error that was logged in ndsd.log:
"ndsd: malloc.c:3678: __libc_malloc: Assertion `!victim ||
((((mchunkptr)((char*)(victim) - 2*(sizeof"(size_t)))))->size & 0x2) ||
ar_ptr == (((((mchunkptr)((char*)(victim)- 2*(sizeof(size_t)))))->size &
0x4) ? ((heap_info *)((unsigned long)(((mchunkptr)((char*)(victim) - 2*
(sizeof(size_t))))) & ~((2 * (4 * 1024 * 1024 *
sizeof(long)))-1)))->ar_ptr : &main_arena)' failed."

have you any ideas, suggestions?
