    valgrind issue with trace-children=yes


    If I run my programme with trace_children=No, I am able to run the program under valgrind and get memory leak status.

    Valgrind is unable to run the program if I make trace_children option to yes.

    Below is the machine info
    [root@TFRL8VM1 tmp]# uname -a
    Linux TFRL8VM1 2.6.18-53.el5 #1 SMP Wed Oct 10 16:34:19 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    All my applications are 64 bit and I have one children from the parent process for I which need to do memory leak analysis.

    I am stuck trying multiple other tools with no good results.

    Help me or provide any pointers.

    Not sure if valgrind supports 64-bit architectures. (Does it?)

    I am able to run with trace-children=no. The problem is when I set it to yes, it aborts.
