    This would be code in an Xlib application I'm writing.

    Probably your code is linked with -lmcheck, right?

    I've never got this warning message (usually only double free calls), but you should check with gdb wich free() cause this message, and consequently check you malloc() or realloc() calls of that memory segment...
