Yes, it is too bad that emacs has become a little unstable.
Maybe the distributed souce code management system may have something
to do with it. Before, developers were very careful and use only a
single master repository thus messing it up would have been a cardinal
sin, but
nowadays, people can create various branches and merge them (at least
so that it builds/compiles). BUT, the runtime behavior may suffer.
Just my guess.

These problems with the allocater have actually been triggered by a
glibc change.  The malloc hooks were dropped which forces Emacs to use a
different configuration that had not been widely tested for a long time,
so meanwhile bugs had crept in.

So a different reason. I came to my pet conclusion too fast.

I suspect that "configure" is a very difficult code to write correctly.

Again, thank you for your e-mails.

Emacs has been maintained in good condition by people like you.

So thank you very much!
