Application crash on IBM AIX 5.2

P: n/a
We have an application that runs under Linux, solaris. The Application
was developed in C++ under linux, it supports both Oracle and Informix
database.

For database connectivity in oracle it uses OTL (Oracle template
library) and for informix it uses ESQL

In all the platforms we use GNU C/C++ compiler for building the
executable( Version >= 3.3.2)

Now we are trying to port this application to IBM AIX 5.2 machine (64
bit machine), it compiles fine, when we run the server for Oracle it
works fine but when we run the same server for informix it crashes
(Signal 11, Segmentation fault).

The crash happens in various places, some time it happens when we
allocate memory for an object using new system call.

Following is the error Output detected by GDB:
Location: When program try to create informix data adaptor (using new)
for second time.
Error with Thread:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

sometime it happens when application try to connect with informix
database using ESQL connect

we checked the memory allocation in our program, it is fine (it runs in
Linux, Solaris, SCO and Windows), we also used GNU Malloc library for
compiling the application, still crashs at the same positions

Please let me know if anyone have a clue how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.
