ElectricFence Aborting: Allocating 0 bytes, probably a bug

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • We have some code where regex actually does a malloc(0) which it should not do.
  • This results in ElectricFence Aborting: Allocating 0 bytes, probably a bug
    • Could you respond with any further questions you may have, and or official work around for this incompatibility between efence and regex?
