Ouch.  I'll take a peek.  Your lifetime guess is probably a good one.
I'd think that most likely what's happening is that a bucket (or a bucket
buffer) is getting freed but still being used afterward; the bucket
freelists would reassign that storage thereby making it easy for the first
to corrupt the second.  Can you give me an exact sequence of requests to
duplicate this?
