f2py Error - module crashes after several iterations...

P: n/a


I have a module created from a Fortran file to read in unformatted binary
fortran output. It works fine for some datasets, but crashes with others.
The strange thing is it will loop through several files before it crashes,
then suddently giving me this output:

*** glibc detected *** python: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0xb34ac008
