Default *** glibc detected *** munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0xb7f1a470 ***

I'm having an issue with the NVIDIA 180.xx series driver throwing the subject error.
This happens with XULRunner based apps, such as Firefox and Songbird. It looks like it may be related to LibGL.so. If I switch from the NVIDIA OpenGL interface to Mesa, while keeping the actual NVIDIA X driver, the apps load fine.
Just for fun, I compiled Firefox 3.1Beta2 with the QT toolkit and it loads without error. The GTK toolkit, however, crashes. Other GTK, including Firefox 2.x, work fine.

There may be a related thread over on the Songbird forums at http://getsatisfaction.com/songbird/...d_free_pointer

I've attached a NVIDIA bug report. Please let me know if you need any thing else from me.

Removing Glitz support from Cairo allowed Firefox and Songbird to start. Before I recompiled, I tried the 177.82 drivers and didn't have any problems.

I can confirm this issue.
Everything works fine with 177.82.

With 180.16:
Firefox doesn't start ( Cairo with Glitz ).
Firefox is unusable slow, often freezes for few seconds with 100% CPU usage ( Cairo without Glitz ).

Not having Glitz is a pain. I hope we hear something from NVIDIA about this.

180.18 does not fix this.
Didn't expect it would, judging from the release notes.

I'm a Gentoo user, and I had just that problem when I tried using Firefox 3.0.x from Mozilla.org. From my tests, the problem disappeared when I tried libglx.so from nvidia-177.8x series, but that's not a solution. Also, the problem sometimes disappeared when cairo was compiled without glitz support. In my case the problems disappeared when I updated cairo from 1.6.x to 1.8.x and I installed Firefox 3.0.x from source.

Is your Cairo linked to Glitz?

Yes cairo is linked to glitz.
