That makes me worried that there's some sort of malloc heap corruption,
since that's where innd died (in a malloc called by regexec).  innd dies
right after you get that message, right?

Is there any way that you could run innd under valgrind or purify or
something along those lines and see if it turns up where the memory
corruption may be happening?
