[webkit-dev] Debugging Memory Errors

Hi WebKit,

I was wondering how folks debug memory errors such as use after free and allocated memory overflows.
I have seen some bugs mentioning libgmalloc.

I can run safari with:
run-safari --debug --guard-malloc
But I don't seem to get the full stack traces I have seen in the bugs.

I have also seen mention of setting DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES to /usr/lib/libgmalloc.dylib, but doing so seems to lock up the build-webkit command.

Any tips/tricks/pointers would be greatly appreciated,
