BUG: id3v2-0.1.11 malloc errors

Reported by: duke@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.2
Keywords: Cc: brent@…, nox@…
Port: id3v2

Description (last modified by blb@…)

I installed the id3v2 port and upon using it got an error like the following for each file I processed:

id3v2(22560) malloc: * Deallocation of a pointer not malloced: 0x90001c7a; This could be a double free(), or free() called with the middle of an allocated block; Try setting environment variable MallocHelp to see tools to help debug

I was initially using the id3v2 options [aAtTyg]. I narrowed the problem down to the track number option "-T". I tried the following three formats, all with the same result: -T 01/11, -T "01/11", -T 01.

I pegged the severity of this bug as minor because it still tags my files properly despite the error.

Brent, do you still maintain this port?

Such a message indicates a programming error which must be fixed upstream, though I note id3v2 hasn't been updated in some time.

Replying to blb@…:

I don't know what changed, but I don't get the error anymore. I didn't realize I had submitted a bug report for this.
