Description:I am seeing regular crashes (at least once per week) on several new Asterisk servers with core files showing an error in the same location every time. This seems to be related to when one of our several different sites turns on all their SIP devices and they all try to register within a very short period.

The backtrace is showing the crash is caused because a negative value is being passed to the memmove() function. I do not understand anything about how the db/btree code works to debug why the pointer arithmetic has produced this result.

Can you provide the backtrace per the instructions on the wiki?

Closing issue due to lack of feedback, plus this is reported against Asterisk 1.4 which is no longer in maintenance mode. Additionally Asterisk 1.10 will utilize SQLite3 in order to work around several issues with the Berkeley DB implementation.
