valgrind on freebsd during make test

Hello Metze,

While trying to find the famous freebsd pb I saw this:

dos charset 'CP850' unavailable - using ASCII
==3252== Syscall param writev(vector[...]) points to uninitialised byte(s)
==3252==    at 0x63DC7EC: __sys_writev (in /lib/
==3252==    by 0x4744433: tstream_bsd_writev_handler (tsocket_bsd.c:1817)
==3252==    by 0x474431B: tstream_bsd_writev_send (tsocket_bsd.c:1785)
==3252==    by 0x4740426: tstream_writev_send (tsocket.c:695)
==3252==    by 0x4741270: tstream_writev_queue_trigger 
==3252==    by 0x1D1EB88: tevent_queue_immediate_trigger 
==3252==    by 0x1D1E807: tevent_common_loop_immediate 
==3252==    by 0x1D21360: std_event_loop_once (tevent_standard.c:532)
==3252==    by 0x1D1D97E: _tevent_loop_once (tevent.c:493)

It looks pretty strange, can it just a wrong alarm from valgrind ?
