[Bug libc/3462] New: Malloc memory corruption when malloc(...) called

I simple call to malloc results in the following error:

*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x00000000005b61c0 ***

I am requesting 5750*380*8 (17,480,000) bytes of data.  I am running on an 
Intel Woodcrest system (em64t architecture).  Many calls to malloc ask for 
similar sizes of memory before this call, but none of them fail.  This call 
consistently fails every time.

Due to the complexity and proprietary nature of the code, I cannot send a 
sample.  However, it occurs exactly as described above.
