I forgot to give more version detail, sorry.  ANyway, I know what the cause
is.  In 2001-08-11, Uli made a change to malloc.c:ptmalloc_init to not use
getenv but next_env_entry (new function) to parse the environment in one go.

However, at that state, the Hurds _environ is not initialized yet, but 0.
The consequence is a segfault.

I don't know if things can be rediddled so that _environ is initialized at
that point, or if it simply should check if _environ is !0.
