Strangely enough, it worked fine with POV-Ray 3.7 under Windows 7 on the 
same machine... so it's probably more likely a software (i. e. POV-Ray 
3.7.0unofficial for Linux) than a hardware issue!

Yes, I load between 125,000 and 300,000 one-pixel PNGs, each of them not 
larger than 90 bytes... what is "freed on redef"? Explain!
