Looks like you hit some internal glibc malloc  integrity selfcheck -
so some memory has been unexpectedly modified - I'd advise to use
valgrind tool to find proper place when the memory is overwritten.

Depends on, what do you do with pointers - you can't use them once you
free vg handle.
But I think valgrind will be here better then 1000 words....
