Problem quitting Simutrans
« on: February 17, 2012, 09:33:23 PM »
Hi everyone,
This is not as it may seem the first simutrans-addiction related topic ;) !
No it is rather a technical problem I have right now with the 17th February nightly. It is a bit strange and I'm not sure as I cannot reproduce it with another pakset than pak128.britain. The problem is that when I try quitting simutrans the usual way (button "quit") it just will not work.
What I get is a stuck program and in the console which is opened as usual at the beginning I get:
Code: [Select]
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
sim-macintel(97050,0xaca0b2c0) malloc: *** error for object 0xfcd608c: pointer being freed was not allocated
I play it with Mac OSX Lion (10.7.3) and the only method of quitting is to force quit "terminal" as force quitting simutrans won't work…
Maybe someone can help…

Looks like either a double destruction or a memory corruption.  I imagine it is related to the bugs being discussed in this thread.

It sure looks like what was discussed in the thread you linked but remember I'm talking about standard-simutrans whilst there there seems to be a problem with simutrans-experimental judging of what I gathered…

It's true that we're only (mostly?) seeing the problems in Experimental, but the problems that have been identified so far have all been in code common to both Standard and Experimental.

I think this report is fixed in r 5344, you have to wait until nightly compiles again.

Yep, now there is no problem with this. Problem solved… move topic.
