New submission from Xavier Morel <bugs.pypy.org at masklinn.net>:

Tried the two most recent nightly builds (from 
http://buildbot.pypy.org/nightly/trunk/), on 10.6.8, in a 
virtualenv each time. There is apparently a bug related to tarfiles handling in 
1.5 (resulting in pip 
install pytz taking a long time, and the same with feedparser not terminating in 
over 10 minutes), so 
Alex Gaynor suggested I try nightlies where it should be fixed:

> python --version
Python 2.7.1 (8678888acad7, Jun 26 2011, 02:10:04)
[PyPy 1.5.0-alpha0 with GCC 4.0.1]
> pip install pytz
Downloading/unpacking pytz
  Downloading pytz-2011h.tar.bz2 (170Kb): 170Kb downloaded
  Running setup.py egg_info for package pytz
    python(44017) malloc: *** error for object 0x1024300b8: pointer being freed 
was not allocated
    *** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
    Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
    python(44017) malloc: *** error for object 0x1024300b8: pointer being freed 
was not allocated

*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

----------------------------------------
Command python setup.py egg_info failed with error code -6
Storing complete log in ~/.pip/pip.log

> python --version

I got similar result with simplejson (simplejson-2.1.6.tar.gz), Babel (Babel-
0.9.6.tar.gz), CherryPy 
(CherryPy-3.2.0.tar.gz), DateUtil (python-dateutil-1.5.tar.gz) and Werkzeug 
(Werkzeug-0.6.2.tar.gz), and 
stopped there.
