Hi all.

I have a very strange and uncommon problem.

I have Ruby version 1.9 from 13 oct 2006 on Windows XP.

I use some complex library from Ruby (large .dll + C extension I've written
to talk to DLL from Ruby).

All works well, but when I try using the library together with Net::HTTP, I
have segmentation faults.

The code looks like:

---
Net::HTTP.get_response '192.168.1.1', '/index.html'
SomeLibrary.call_some_method
---

The segfault appeared on second line, in the deeps in SomeLibrary.dll
If I not using Net::HTTP calls in first line (instead, I read something from
local file) - all works good.
SomeLibrary's author debugged the case and said "somebody shoot my memory",
like:
--
HEAP[ruby.exe]: HEAP: Free Heap block 33a6e48 modified at 33a6e74 after it
was freed
--

I've debugged (through dumb commenting/uncommenting lines) that the problem
seems to be inside socket.readline inside HTTPResponse.read_status_line
(net/http.rb, line 2017). Unfortuately, just now I have no advanced memory
debugging tools to say something more concrete about who and how shoots the
memory.

What can I do with this? I'd be happy to any advices!

(If it is important, SomeLibrary == HTMLayout, custom HTML layouting engine.
It doesn't use IE or Firefox, but it may use some Windows socket and inet
API - can the problem lay here?)

Thanks.

V.
