In top's status line, the following message is redrawn at each update:

top in free(): warning: page is already free.

Also, when starting top, it says:

top in free(): warning: chunk is already free.

Top seems to operate correctly other than this, and I'm not seeing a memory
leak. I'm going to today's sources and trying again.


make build - There's nothing special going on here that I know of.


Unknown as yet.
