I highly suspect a memory corruption problem in that part of the code, e.g.
calling free() twice with the same pointer, or free() with an invalid

Yes, these are both frame-related problems. Frames are still experimental and
need lots of work.

I've fixed this now.
The log of the last build (or attempted build) is also now available at

Are you still getting this problem with the latest build? Please email
me !NetSurf.stderr if so.
The new, cool download windows are all placed on the same position on
