On a slightly different note, I've noticed a problem with very
large arrays.  The memory allocator in glibc 2.1 seems to crash
with arrays of about 40,000 elements, probably because of
fragmentation caused by calls to realloc().  If it's possible to
determine the size of the array beforehand, I tend to malloc()
the array beforehand and copy elements in using array
