Re: [gtk-list] Re: Any problems with malloc functions?

I think I have found at least part of the problem I am having:  I traced
the program execution to here:

In the function gdk_wcstombs, the call to XwcTextListToTextProperty
fails, and gdk_wcstombs returns null.  Bingo, a free to a non-allocated
pointer in gtk_label_paint_word.  Here is the function:

 * gdk_wcstombs 
 * Returns a multi-byte string converted from the specified array
 * of wide characters. The string is newly allocated. The array of
 * wide characters must be null-terminated. If the conversion is
 * failed, it returns NULL.
gchar *
gdk_wcstombs (const GdkWChar *src)
  gchar *mbstr;
  if (gdk_use_mb)
      XTextProperty tpr;
      if (sizeof(wchar_t) != sizeof(GdkWChar))
    	  gint i;
    	  wchar_t *src_alt;
    	  for (i=0; src[i]; i++);
    	  src_alt = g_new (wchar_t, i+1);
    	  for (; i>=0; i--)
    	    src_alt[i] = src[i];
    	  if (XwcTextListToTextProperty (gdk_display, &src_alt, 1,
XTextStyle, &tpr)
    	      != Success)
    	      g_free (src_alt);
    	      return NULL;
    	  g_free (src_alt);
***    	  if (XwcTextListToTextProperty (gdk_display, (wchar_t**)&src,
    					 XTextStyle, &tpr) != Success)
    	      return NULL;
       * We must copy the string into an area allocated by glib, because
       * the string 'tpr.value' must be freed by XFree().
      mbstr = g_strdup(tpr.value);
      XFree (tpr.value);
      gint length = 0;
      gint i;
      while (src[length] != 0)
      mbstr = g_new (gchar, length + 1);
      for (i=0; i<length+1; i++)
    	mbstr[i] = src[i];
  return mbstr;

The line marked with the *** is the line that is failing.  I don't have
the xlib programming books with me right now, so I can't look up what
this function does.  I looked at all the arguments and none are illegal
(null).  I couldn't really see any useful info in them, so I'm not
sending them here.  Anyone have any ideas/background that could help?
