Yes, it only manifestatesif you have sound effects turned on - and only
then if you have sawfish, a 32bit executable running on a 64bit kernel.
The bug is in dlmalloc and is workaroundable by using the system malloc
instead. I think the workaround is in 1.0.1

Thus it happens also on non-solaris platforms (like tru64) but doesn't
happen on non-ultrapsarc sparcs under solaris.
