Default glibc memory corruption

What would cause this?

bunyip rpm # /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin/vmware
*** glibc detected *** /opt/vmware/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: malloc():
memory corruption: 0x09f35e80 ***
^C
bunyip rpm #

Ive tried doing a emerge -ep world
glibc is

* sys-libs/glibc
Latest version available: 2.12.2
Latest version installed: 2.12.2
Size of downloaded files: 16,008 kB
Homepage: http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/libc.html
Description: GNU libc6 (also called glibc2) C library
License: LGPL-2

Ive tried vmware 7.1.3 and 7.1.4 from the vmware overlay and various
kernels

google has lots of occurrences but no fixes Ive found.

Next step is to try a newer glibc but I would like to know if there are
any more obvious steps to take first.

This isn't something you can fix. Only the VMware developers can do that.

Do you have the MALLOC_CHECK env var set, btw? AFAIK, these "glibc
detected" messages are the result of that. It's usually a bad idea as
it's slows down all software on your system.
