Description Marcin Gryszkalis 2009-11-07 15:30:51 UTC
After upgrading to 3.5.5 I cannot start firefox, I get following assertion:

jemalloc.c:6224: Failed assertion: "((alignment - 1) & alignment) == 0 && alignment >= sizeof(void *)"

Program firefox (pid = 20910) received signal 6.

Reproducible: Always

In gdb I can see following backtrace:

I re-emerged firefox, xulrunner, nspr and glibc.

emerge --info please.
Comment 2 Sebastian Luther (few) 2009-11-07 19:28:10 UTC
emerge --info is no longer needed.
