[Bug libc/3397] New: free() aborts with invalid pointer message

Distribution: LFS
glibc version: 2.5
glibc configure options: --prefix=/usr --disable-profile --enable-add-ons   
                         --enable-kernel=2.6.0 --libexecdir=/usr/lib/glibc
kernel version: Linux lfs 2.6.18 #6 PREEMPT Thu Sep 28 14:58:32 CEST 2006 
                i686 athlon-4 i386 GNU/Linux
glibc build toolchain versions: gcc 4.1.0
                                binutils 2.17

Description: free() aborts the process with invalid pointer message if         
             malloc was called with a specific value (in test program 241056 Byte)
             or if free is called serial, but with different pointers

Steps to reproduce: 

1. compile code with gcc -g -O0 -o sobel_test sobel_test.c
2. start program (program should abort with output shown below)
3. change #define WIDTH 324 to #define WIDTH 325 (line 5) 
   remove free(vertical_sobel_image) (line 136)
4. compile code with gcc -g -O0 -o sobel_test sobel_test.c
5. start program (program should exit normally)

Debug output:

*** glibc detected *** ./sobel_test: free(): invalid pointer: 0xb7df7008 ***

this was also tested with Fedora Core 5 with the same result
(glibc version 2.4)
