For example, `virtual_break_value' is not updated in that case.  It
can lead to an inconsistent state as reported if r_alloc_sbrk is
called with a positive argument via malloc when
use_relocatable_buffers <= 0, and then it is called with a negative
argument via free when use_relocatable_buffers > 0.
