Malloc problem

Kind persons:

I recently upgraded from gcc.2.95.x to gcc-3.3.3 and its associated glibc.
My program still compiles but at runtime I now get a segmentation violation
from a malloc call.  Did some major change go into malloc that is now more
strict than previous versions? Does anyone know what might be causing this
previously-running program to fail?

Thanks for any input.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
