        During auto-completion I see this:

        malloc: variables.c:1886: assertion botched
        free: underflow detected; mh_nbytes out of range
        last command: exec /usr/bin/bash
        Stopping myself...

        It appears that merely running the compgen command
        is sufficient to make this happen.  I see the bash
        process grow it's RSS size at an alarming rate until
        I kill it.

        If I re-compile with GNU malloc, the error text isn't
        as verbose but the behavior is the same.
