I did try valgrind yesterday, for the first time. I just used the
basic memory check that I saw in a Getting Started document: "valgrind
--leak-check=yes my_program_name". It did not tell me anything
interesting before the crash happened (when the memory was already
corrupted). After the crash it gave me the same backtrace stack I got
with gdb plus thousands of lines about memory issues, so much so that
I could not get anything useful out of it.

I read that valgrind is a very powerful tool with lots of features, so
hopefully over time I will learn how to make better use of it.
