I think I've found it:

This is line 1127 of svdrp.c:

     cTimer t = *timer;

Although this looks like it calls cTimer::operator=, it actually calls 
the default copy constructor of cTimer, because in this case = is not an 
assignment, but an initialization. Because of that, the aux field is 
used by both objects, thus the double free. Try this line to see if it 
causes this:

     cTimer t;
     t = *timer;

Cheers,


Udo
