If it's crashing in malloc then almost certainly some memory is being
overwriten elsewhere in the code.

I know rc4 works fine on Alpha so that should rule out any 64bit related 
problems. It's probably worth trying ElectricFence or some such malloc debugger
to isolate just where the corruption is occurring.
