Ok, I rebuilt 3.7-master in debug mode.
The program is dying during parsing, in source/backend/math/splines.cpp,
function mkfree, at line 440. The code is:


I notice that this code has changed from 3.7-stable (where it works, or at least
it doesn't bomb).

This happens when attempting to run the spectral rendering macros in
http://www.lilysoft.org/CGI/SR/Spectral%20Render.htm . I cannot see anything
related to splines in these macros, however.

My machine is 64 bits, running Linux Mint, based on Ubuntu 14.04.

I'm not an expert in STL, so I'm somewhat at a loss trying to find the error...
