Run your program under 'valgrind':

It is dead easy to do so:

  $ valgrind [valgrind-options] myprog [my-options]

'valgrind' should pick up initialized variables and out
of bounds array access.

If not already on your system, 'valgrind' is available
via debian package 'valgrind' (or my system).

One other thought: GLPK is not officially thread safe:
do you call GLPK concurrently?
