See my post "watch out for new breakage" from last week.  Almost
immediately after a commit last week, I started getting segfaults
consistently on AIX during a regression test run.  I mentioned one
backtrace in that post.  A rarer backtrace is where an internal free()
routine segfaults (perhaps similar to your backtrace, where some heap
structures are bogus, probably due to a bad free()?).

I haven't had a chance to debug.  The regression test does initiate a
graceful restart right before most requests.

I'm seeing it on a 1-way box and a 4-way box.
