All these:

brk(0x7f4d856de000)                     = 0x7f4d856de000
brk(0x7f4d856ff000)                     = 0x7f4d856ff000
brk(0x7f4d85720000)                     = 0x7f4d85720000

mean it's in a tight loop allocating memory.

Rebuild with -g (debug), reproduce the problem
then attach to the errent process using
gdb -p, and the type "bt" to get a backtrace.
