I just updated to 5.99.56 and see how it fares. I am under "tight"
memory condition having only 256MBytes of ram on the laptop currently.
this should be fixed now, assuming it is the same problem:
it will have triggered under memory-pressure conditions. the easy
test case was building qemu in a smaller VM. i noticed that at
various points of the qemu build, cc1 grew to *over* 1GiB, and a
gas process had grown to over 400MiB. so.. qemu is a good test of
straining the system. this was also PR#45361. the symptoms could
have been kind of anything since it was a memory corruption issue.
Yesterday, while using it directly, the machine froze completely under
X11, needing a power-cycle. I don't know if it is related.
I just subscribed to current-users, it makes probably more sense to
continue discussion there. I hope we can sort out these things before a
release. It makes me uncomfortable to have an unstable NetBSD machine.
