Description:This crash appears to have happened while processing an outbound call via SIP using the Dial command.  We have had a few of these crashes after upgrading from 1.2 to 1.4.  I have been trying but can't figure out steps to reproduce.  It only seems to happen to our production servers that are under load.  I'm hoping that someone can get something from this backtrace.


Dell 1950, CentOS 4.5, 2 x 3GHz Xeon, 2GB RAM
One endpoint is a polycom 501 running sip 211.  The other is another asterisk server running 1.4.8.

It appears as though it's crashing inside of the ast_calloc call - which would be quite bizarre, as we're passing it perfectly valid arguments.

Can you confirm that this build is unoptimized?  Do other backtraces show the same information?  Would you be willing to test on the latest version (1.4.11)?

The server where this crash happened is built with DONT_OPTIMIZE.  We are planning on upgrading a few of our servers to 1.4.11 tonight.  I will post back any change in behavior we notice.

I think this issue is related to an issue with the LOCAL channel.  We were getting this and other random crashes after we upgraded from 1.2 to 1.4.  We have now re-configured the places in the dialplan where we were using LOCAL channels, and are no longer experiencing this crash.  The bug we filed for the LOCAL issue is: 10571.  We are still on 1.4.9 in production and are not seeing this any more.  I would say this issue can be closed.
