makeinfo html malloc problem (current cvs)

In a fresh build of the current texinfo cvs, on a mostly up-to-date i386
debian system, processing my chart.texi file below into html produces a
malloc error,

        gunzip chart.texi.gz
        makeinfo --html chart.texi
        => glibc.out messages attached below

Running under electric-fence gives a gdb trap efence.out below; it
claims the store in add_char,

        output_paragraph[output_paragraph_offset] = character;

has gone beyond the malloced size of the block.  The contents of
output_paragraph at that point suggest it might be somewhere in the big
@multitable within "@node Yahoo Exchanges".  (I haven't tried to cut it
down to isolate.)

I upgraded to glibc 2.5 (from 2.3.2) recently, so maybe that's a factor.
The current debian makeinfo 4.8 seems fine (with that new libc).
