When using the http-form module in hydra 5.4, hydra crashes with errors along the lines of
*** glibc detected *** hydra: free(): invalid pointer: 0x0000000000528080 ***
Steps to Reproduce:
Run hydra with using the http-(post/get)-form module correctly

Patch to solve the free problem
Any plans to integrate the patch in portage? Seems fine to me as the patch only removes calls to free() on a pointer on which malloc() was apparently never called in the first place, hence the crash. See http://packetstorm.linuxsecurity.com/groups/thc/indexdate.html, hydra-http-form.patch.
Thank you for report, deanx. Patch was added in hydra-5.4-r1.
