The following packages (and their subpackages) have been updated for

After this update my GTK builds of Emacs trunk do not work any more. For
example, the bootstrap of rev. 113816 I did yesterday and that worked
fine up to before this update, now fails so:

$ emacs -Q &
[1] 3044

***MEMORY-ERROR***: [3044]: GSlice: failed to allocate 504 bytes
(alignment: 512): Function not implemented

[1]+  Aborted                 (core dumped) emacs -Q

So, after this update, I tried a new bootstrap (rev.113838) but id fails
in the same manner:

if test "no" = "yes"; then \
   rm -f bootstrap-emacs.exe; \
   ln temacs.exe bootstrap-emacs.exe; \
else \
   `/bin/pwd`/temacs --batch --load loadup bootstrap || exit 1; \
   test "X" = X ||  -zex emacs.exe; \
   mv -f emacs.exe bootstrap-emacs.exe; \

***MEMORY-ERROR***: [896]: GSlice: failed to allocate 504 bytes

Probably this issue affects also the Cygwin (GTK) package of Emacs..

It seems that the workaround is to start Emacs with G_SLICE=always-malloc,

$ G_SLICE=always-malloc emacs -Q &

Ken, wasn't this issue fixed upstream some time ago?

Just for the record, I can reproduce the same issue with emacs-x11 from Cygwin package.
