FWIW, I recently investigated a similar memory corruption problem with 
freeradius reported by glibc on RHEL 5. I was not able to reproduce it 
on a current RHEL 5.2 system. The fact I couldn't reproduce it does not 
in and of itself mean anything, the memory corruption could require a 
specific series of events to trigger it, but I do believe glibc had been 
updated between the original report and my efforts at reproducing it. 
This might corroborate your observation (or might not :-)
