This is the wrong group for discussing programming problems in C++ on Fedora.

That withstanding the error message indicates that the C library found an 
inconsistency in it's maintenance data when it did a free (most likely coming 
from a C++ delete if you program C++). The most common reason for that is 
that your program has a bug and trashes the heap, corrupting it. Find your 
bug and the error will go away.
