      Description

      The automated stress testing reported a memory corruption error - invalid fastbin entry (free) - when running on zSeries:

      *** Error in `/mnt/workspace/wiredtiger-test-format-stress-zseries/build_posix/.libs/lt-wt': invalid fastbin entry (free): 0x000000008ea6ac90 ***

      It was the shelled rebalance command that fails:

      wts_rebalance/71: system(cmd): command failed: ../../wt -h RUNDIR dump -f RUNDIR/rebalance.new table:wt: Unknown error 134
      

      There has been some precedence of this error being caused by a GLIBC bug (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=593396). That was in glibc 2.12, the machine this failed on is running:

      $ rpm -qa | grep glibc
      glibc-2.17-106.el7_2.4.s390x
